Problem 1E

A squirrel has x- and y-coordinates (1.1 m, 3.4 m) at time t1 = 0 and coordinates (5.3 m, - 0.5 m) at time t2 = 3.0 s. For this time interval, find (a) the components of the average velocity, and (b) the magnitude and direction of the average velocity.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 1E The components of average velocity is found by using average velocity formula avg.velocity = (x x )/(t t ) 2 1 2 1 In this case, v x (5.3 1.1)/(3.0) = 1.4 m/s. v y ( 0.5 3.4)/(3.0) = 1.3 m/s. v = v 2 + v 2 = 1.91 m/s. x y direction:tan = v yv x 45 ,below the positive x axis.
