Q1:

The average speed of a moving object during a given interval of time is always: A. B. C. D. E. the magnitude of its average velocity over the interval the distance covered during the time interval divided by the time interval one-half its speed at the end of the interval its acceleration multiplied by the time interval one-half its acceleration multiplied by the time interval.

Ans: Q2: A car travels 40 kilometers at an average speed of 80 km/h and then travels 40 kilometers at an average speed of 40 km/h. The average speed of the car for this 80km trip is: Ans: x1 t1 x1 t1 = v1 v1 = v2 = t2 = x2 t2 x2 t2 = v2 t2 = 1 h 40 40

t1 = 0.5 h vav =

t1 =

40 80 2

x1+ x2 40 + 40 80 = = = / t1+ t 2 0.5 + 1 1.5

Q3: The position of an object is given as a function of time by x = 4t+3t2, where x is in m and t is in seconds. Find its instantaneous velocity at t = 2s: Ans: v(t) = dx d (4t + 3t 2 ) = 4 + 6t = dt dt

v(2) = 4 + 6.2 = /
