Consider the plot below describing the acceleration of a particle along a straight line with an initial position of 10 m and an initial velocity of 9 m/s.
1. What is the velocity at 7 s? 2. What is the position at 7 s?

Please help me! I got the answer 12 for #1 and 0.5 for #2, but the computer's telling me these are wrong (it's an online worksheet). I don't understand why?

Well you can use the two default equations.
[tex]v=v_o +at[/tex] [tex]x=v_ot+\frac{1}{2}at^2[/tex] You'll have to use each equation twice for each problem though.
