Question: sketch positionversustime graphs x versus t or y versus t...

Question details

Sketch position-versus-time graphs (x versus t or y versus t) for the following motions. Include appropriate numerical scales along both axes. A small amount of computation may be necessary. 1. A parachutist opens her parachute at an altitude of 1500 m. She then descends slowly to earth at a steady speed of 5 m/s. Start your graph as her parachute opens. Trucker Bob starts the day 120 miles west of Denver. He drives east for 3 hours at a steady 60 miles/hour before stopping for his coffee break. Let Denver be located at x 0 mi and assume that the x-axis points to the east. a. b.
