The graph at right records the distance a bicyclist travels from Oshkosh to a town 10 miles away. Homework Help ✎
Describe the velocity of the bicyclist.
What was the bike's average velocity
Approximate the bike's instantaneous velocity at t = 5 hours.
The velocity is the slope of a distance graph.
The velocity is always positive. The bicyclist accelerates between t = 0 and t = 5 and then deccelerates between t = 5 and t = 10. S/he is moving fastest at t = 5.
IROC at a point = slope of the tangent line at that point.
