CD, DE, EF, and FG. The displacement of
the jogger with a constant acceleration is
equal to the average velocity during a time
interval multiplied by the time interval.
Because the time intervals are equal, the
displacements are in the same order as
decreasing average velocities. By inspection
the average velocity decreases in the order
CD, DE, EF, and FG.
10. 2.6 m
Given
vi = 0.25 m/s
a = 0.40 m/s2
t = 3.0 s
Solution
x = vi t + 12 a(t)2 =
(0.25m/s)(3.0s) +
(0.40 m/s2 )(3.0s)2
2
= 2.6 m
