A car is stopped at a traffic light. It then travels along a straight road so that its distance from the light is given by , where = 2.40 and = 0.100 .
1. Calculate the average velocity of the car for the time interval = 0 to = 10.0 .
2. How long after starting from rest is the car again at rest?
I know this is borderline physics problem, but I need to find the slope of this function, which will give me the average velocity, but I do not really know how.
When the time is 0, I received 2.3 meters.
When the time is 10, I received 340 meters.
However, when I did 337.7 meters divided by 10 seconds, I didn't get the right answer. Help is needed! thanks!
