In this problem, we are required to determine the effect of a constant net force on the velocity and position.
Newton's second law will be an integral part of this problem.
For each of the net force versus time graphs in Parts A, B, and C, construct a possible corresponding graph of velocity v(t), or position x(t), versus time. Assume one-dimensional motion.
PART A: Plot velocity versus time. (Figure 1)
PART B: Plot velocity versus time. (Figure 2)
PART C: Plot positin versus time. (Figure 3)
