Position vs time graphs
Interpreting a position graph
1.What is the position at t =0min
2.What is the position at t =30min
3.What is the velocity at t = 20min
4.What is the velocity at t = 50min
5. What is the acceleration at t=20min
6. If this is V vs. t graph, and x = 0 km
at t = 0min. What is the position at t = 80 min

Definition of acceleration
See page 57
If set t0=0s,
∆t = t
Example 2.13
A rocket sled accelerates at 50m/s
2
for 5.0 s. Coasts for 3.0 s, then deploys a
parachute and decelerates at 3.0m/s
2
until coming to a halt.
What is the maximum velocity of the rocket sled?
What is the total distance traveled?

Homework 2.50
•
A 1000Kg weather rocket is launched straight up. The rocket motor
provides a constant acceleration for 16s, then the motor stops. The
rocket altitude 20 s after launch is 5100m. You can ignore the air
resistance
a) What was the rocket’s acceleration during the first 16 s.
The rocket launched with Vo = 0, after 16 s
b) After motor stops, the acceleration is
–
g as free fall.
c) The rocket’s speed as it passes through a cloud 5100m above the ground
