A particle moves according to the equation x = 10t2, where x is in meters and t is in seconds. Find the average velocity for the time interval from 2.0 second to 3.0 second.

x(t)=10t^2
(x(3)-x(2))/(3-2)=(90-40)=50 (m/s)

A particle undergoes three consecutive displacements:
d1 = (10i + 30j + 12k), d2 = (23i - 14j -22k), and d3 = (-15i + 20j).
Find the magnitude of the resultant displacement.

d1+d2+d3=(18i+36j-10k)

displacement = sqrt(18*18+36*36+10*10)=41.47 (m)
