Instantaneous and Average Velocity and Speed
Velocity, speed, and position vs. time are graphed for a Smart Cart moving up and down an inclined track. Software tools are used to find instantaneous velocities and speeds at different moments of the motion, and average velocities and speeds for different intervals of the motion. For these same intervals, displacement and time values are found from the position graph, and used to calculate average velocity and speed, to compare to the values found from the other graphs.PreviewDownload
