Average Velocity Video Lessons

Concept

Problem: A rocket carrying a satellite is accelerating straight up from the earths surface. At 1.25 s after liftoff, the rocket clears the top of its launch platform, 61 m above the ground. After an additional 4.75 s , it is 1.30 km above the ground.Calculate the magnitude of the average velocity of the rocket for the 4.75 s part of its flight.Calculate the magnitude of the average velocity of the rocket the first 6.00 s of its flight.
