Problem

A cat walks in a straight line, which we shall call the x-axis with the positive direction to the right. As an observant physicist, you make measurements of this cats motion and construct a graph of the felines velocity as a function of time (the figure The plot shows the cat’s velocity as a function of time. Time is measured from 0 to 7 seconds on the x-axis. The velocity is measured from 0 to 8 centimeters per second on the y-axis. The velocity decreases linearly from 0 seconds and 8 centimeters per second to 6 seconds and 0 centimeters per second and keeps decreasing at the same rate until 7 seconds.).
