d (cm)




Step 1 - Draw a tangent line at the time you want to find the velocity

d (cm)





Step 2 - Find the SLOPE of the tangent line (Slope = Velocity)

distance (cm)


  Slope of tangent = ∆d/∆t
= Velocity @ 6 sec.

= (2.5 m - .5m)/(8.8 sec - 4 sec)


 = .4 m/s



Rank the accelerations from greatest to least.
