  • 2. 

    A runner's position is 40 m at time t = 0 s. If he runs at a constant pace of 1.5 m/s, what will his position be at t = 45s?

    • A.

      67.5 meters

    • B.

      107.5 meters

    • C.

      40 meters

    • D.

      106.5 meters

    Correct Answer
    B. 107.5 meters
    Explanation
    The runner's initial position is given as 40 m at time t = 0 s. Since he runs at a constant pace of 1.5 m/s, we can calculate his position at t = 45 s by multiplying his velocity (1.5 m/s) by the time interval (45 s) and adding it to his initial position (40 m). Therefore, the runner's position at t = 45 s will be 1.5 m/s * 45 s + 40 m = 67.5 m + 40 m = 107.5 meters.

  • 3. 

    A runner's position is 20 m at time t = 0 s. If he runs at a constant pace of 0.5 m/s, what will his position be at t = 45s?

    • A.

      20 meters

    • B.

      40.5 meters

    • C.

      42.5 meters

    • D.

      22.5 meters

    Correct Answer
    C. 42.5 meters
    Explanation
    The runner's position at time t = 0 s is given as 20 m. Since the runner is running at a constant pace of 0.5 m/s, we can calculate his position at t = 45 s by multiplying the pace by the time. Therefore, the runner will have covered a distance of 0.5 m/s * 45 s = 22.5 m. Adding this distance to the initial position of 20 m, we get a final position of 20 m + 22.5 m = 42.5 m.

    • B.

      X = (-10 m/sec) (t) + 30 m

    • C.

      X = (-10 m/sec) (t) - 30 m

    • D.

      X = (+10 m/sec) (t) + 30 m

    • E.

      X = (10 m/sec) (t) + 30 m

    Correct Answer
    D. X = (+10 m/sec) (t) + 30 m
    Explanation
    The equation X = (+10 m/sec) (t) + 30 m represents the object's position over time. The +10 m/sec indicates that the object's position is increasing by 10 meters per second. The (t) represents the time in seconds. The +30 m indicates that the object's initial position is 30 meters. Therefore, as time increases, the object's position increases by 10 meters per second.

    • D.

      The vehicle is continually increasing in velocity.

    Correct Answer
    C. The vehicle is at a constant velocity and not moving.
    Explanation
    According to the graph, at 10 seconds, the position of the vehicle remains constant, indicating that it is not moving. Additionally, the slope of the graph is zero at this point, which means that the velocity is also constant. Therefore, the correct answer is that the vehicle is at a constant velocity and not moving.

    Use the graph below to answer questions  #11: Describe the motion of the vehicle at 2-5 seconds

    • A.

      Velocity = +1 m/sec, traveling in the positive direction

    • B.

      Velocity = -1 m/sec, traveling in the positive direction

    • C.

      Velocity = +1 m/sec, traveling in the negative direction

    • D.

      Velocity = -1 m/sec, traveling in the negative direction

    Correct Answer
    D. Velocity = -1 m/sec, traveling in the negative direction
    Explanation
    The graph shows that the velocity of the vehicle decreases from 1 m/sec to -1 m/sec between 2-5 seconds. Since the velocity is negative, it indicates that the vehicle is moving in the negative direction, opposite to the positive direction. Therefore, the correct answer is "Velocity = -1 m/sec, traveling in the negative direction."

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Is this graph possible? Can it describe the motion for one vehicle in a single trial? Choose the best answer below.

    • A.

      No, a vehicle can't be in the same position at the same value.

    • B.

      No, a vehicle can't have different positions attached to different time values.

    • C.

      Yes, a vehicle is able to have two positions at one time value

    • D.

      Yes, a vehicle can have multiple positions (one or more) at one time value.

    Correct Answer
    A. No, a vehicle can't be in the same position at the same value.
    Explanation
    The answer is correct because it is not possible for a vehicle to be in the same position at the same time value. This would violate the basic principles of physics and the concept of motion. In a single trial, a vehicle can have different positions at different time values, but it cannot occupy the same position at the same time.
