Concept

Problem: A velocity-time graph for an object moving along the x-axis is shown in Figure P2.15. (a) Plot a graph of the acceleration versus time. Determine the average acceleration of the object (b) in the time interval t 5 5.00 s to t 5 15.0 s and (c) in the time interval t 5 0 to t 5 20.0 s.
