QUESTION:

Figure P1.55 shows a motion diagram of a car traveling down a street. The camera took one frame every $$10 s$$. A distance scale is provided.

a. Measure the $$x$$-value of the car at each dot. Place your data in a table, similar to Table 1.1, showing each position and the instant of time at which it occurred.

b. Make a position-versus-time graph for the car. Because you have data only at certain instants of time, your graph should consist of dots that are not connected together.
