The graph at right shows the velocity (in miles per hour) of a car during a road trip. At time
Find a function for
Write an equation for each line segment.
How far north has the car traveled at
hours? At hours?
Since this is a velocity graph, calculate the area under the curve for the given interval.
Explain what happened to the car between
, the function values are negative. This is a velocity graph, so what does negative velocity tell you about position?
