1. For t = 0,1,2,3,4 and y=0,25,60,105,160 respectively. Plot this position vs time graph.
2. Is the position graph increasing or decreasing?
4. Area under the curve is used for velocity to position graph. The slope of the position graph is the velocity. How do you go from position graph (0 - 600m) to velocity graph 40 to 80 m/s.
Please see the attachment file (.doc) for the solution analyses.
1. First, we need to find the equation of motion by fitting the curve. Consider the following equation.
Note that we will discuss later about the coefficients a and v0, but now think of these two coefficients as constants. From the table, we pick two points (t, y) = (1, -25), (2, -60) and then solve for coefficients a and v0. ...
