For each of the following situations, draw a plausible graph that shows the relationship between the time

elapsed (horizontal axis) and the indicated speed (vertical axis). In other words, graph speed versus time for each of the following: a. A car in a bumper test travels at a steady speed until it crashes into a wall. b. Your workout consists of some jogging, some hard running, some more jogging, some more hard running, and finally some walking. c. A roller coaster slowly climbs up a steep ramp and then zooms down the other side. (Plot the car’s speed just to the bottom of the first hill.) d. A car speeds at a steady rate along a highway until an officer pulls it over and gives the driver a ticket. The car then resumes its journey at a more responsible speed.
