Quarter horses race a distance of 440 yards (a quarter mile) in a straight line. During a race the following observations where made. The top line gives the time in seconds since the race began and the bottom line gives the distance (in yards) the horse has traveled from the starting line.

1. How fast is the horse running halfway through the race?
2. Find a formula for the velocity of the horse.
3. The horse will win a bonus if the time for the race is less than 22 seconds. Decide whether you think the horse will win the bonus. Explain your reasons.

Hi, this is a great question. Start out by making your own plot of the data. I did not include a plot, because I think it is beneficial for you to do this step. If you plot the given data (distance vs. time), you will see that it is pretty much a line. The general rule is that if a distance vs. time plot is a straight positive sloping line, then the corresponding velocity is positive and constant. Therefore, the velocity in the middle can be calculated by taking the difference of two of the distances and dividing it by the corresponding time points in ...

22. For the case of plane polar coordinate r, theta, write the unit vectors and e_theta in terms of i and j. Hence show that and. By starting with r = re_r, and differentiating, rederive the expressions for the components of the velocity and acceleration vectors.

The equation for a wave moving along a straight wire is: (1) y= 0.5 sin (6 x - 4t)
To look at the motion of the crest, let y = ym= 0.5 m, thus obtaining an equation with only two variables, namely x and t.
a. For y= 0.5, solve for x to get (2) x(t) then take a (partial) derivative of x(t) to get the rate of change of

A car brakes in an emergency, the moment the brakes are first applied is t=0. the car's distance, s, from the point at which the brakes were first applied is given by:

Please see the attachment. I am trying to take the first, second, and third derivatives of this equation, so I can utilize them to determine relationship to force and modulus, and thermal expansion coefficient. Please help me take the derivatives properly. Thanks!

Based on the betting model in the Two-horse race_01.xls spreadsheet, prove that no matter what the posted odds and the bets received are, the expected loss/gain is always zero.
How can the bookmaker make sure he can earn a certain amount that is above the expected zero income from the betting?
