If east is chosen as the positive direction. -280 m 2. d. -0. the average velocity of an object has which of the following properties? a. An object moves 20 m east in 30 s and then returns to its starting point taking an additional 50 s. Select the best answer: 1. It is zero. average acceleration. b. c. On a position versus time graph. It is positive. A truck moves 70 m east. is which of the following quantities? a. 280 m d.40 m c. d. its average velocity is (use the numbers from #3) : a. what is the truck's resultant displacement? a. 1 . 0 m/s 4. 3. 0. d.50 m/s b. or zero. c. . the slope of the straight line joining two points on the plotted curve that are separated in time by the interval t. average velocity. negative. b. 5.
