3-103.

The graph at right shows the distance a bicyclist travels from Oshkosh to a town

Describe the velocity of the bicyclist.

The velocity is the slope of a distance graph.

The velocity is always positive. The bicyclist accelerates between

andand then decelerates betweenand. S/he is moving fastest at. What is the bicyclist’s average velocity?

Average velocity between

andApproximate the bicyclist’s instantaneous velocity at

hours.IROC at a point = slope of the tangent line at that point.
