1. Use the graph above to answer the following questions:
a. Give a written description to describe the motion of this object.

At time zero the object is at zero position and is moving quickly in the
positive direction. It then slows to a stop in 10 seconds.
b. Draw the motion map for the object. Include velocity and
acceleration vectors.

acc: a a a + a a

## c. Determine the instantaneous velocity of the object at t = 2 s and

explain how you did it.
I took the slope of the line connecting the position at 0s and the
position at 4s. The slope of that line is the instantaneous velocity at
the mid-time of 2s.

d. Assume the initial velocity was 10 m/s, determine the acceleration of
the object.

2. Use the graph to answer the following questions.

a. Describe the motion of the object.
At time zero the object is moving in the
negative direction at 15 m/s. It then
slows to a stop in 8 seconds. 15

c. Shade the portion of the graph that represents the displacement of the
object from 2 to 6 seconds.

## d. Calculate the velocity of the object at 2 seconds and at 6 seconds. (No

you are not allowed to just take the values off the graph.)

7. Using the graph compare the following quantities for objects A and B. Is A >
B, A < B, or A = B.
position (m)

A

## a. Displacement from 0 to 3 s ___A3 = B____ How do you know? Begin at

time (s)
same position, end at same position.
b. Displacement from 0 to 1.5 s __ A > B ___ How do you know? A is
moving faster the whole 1.5 s.
c. Displacement from 1.5 to 3 s __ B > A ___ How do you know? B is
moving faster the whole 1.5 s.
d. Average velocity from 0 to 3 s ___A =B____ How do you know? Both
have the same change in position in the same time.
e. Average velocity from 0 to 1.5 s __ A > B ___ How do you know? A has
a greater displacement in the 1.5s so it has a greater average velocity.
f. Average velocity from 1.5 to 3 s __ B > A ___ How do you know? B has a
greater displacement in the 1.5s so it has a greater average velocity.
g. Instantaneous velocity at 3 s __ B > A ___ How do you know? B has a
steeper slope at 3s.
h. Instantaneous velocity at 0 s __ A > B ___ How do you know? A has a
steeper slope at 0s.

## i. If the motion of B is uniformly accelerated, at what time will both graphs

have exactly the same slope? Explain.

## Modeling Instruction 2013 4 U3 Accelerated Motion - Review v3.1

Both graphs will have the same slope at 1.5s. 1.5s is the mid-time for
both and the average velocity is the same as the instantaneous velocity
at the mid-time.
