Considering a tangent line at t = 10.0 s, we get the instantaneous velocity from the slope of the tangent line.
The position of a rabbit along a straight tunnel as a function of time is plotted in the figure.
a.) What is its instantaneous velocity at t = 10.0s?
b.) What is its instantaneous velocity at t = 30.0s?
