A jogger runs in a straight line with an average velocity of 4:7 m/s for 5.1 min, and then with an average velocity of 4.1 m/s for 3 min. What is her total displacement? Answer in units of meters

[tex]d = V_{average}t[/tex]

and then I subtract the two to find the final displacement

No,you have to add the 2 distances.

Even if the runs in the opposite direction on the second time interval,the TOTAL distance would still be gotten by adding the 2.

for the same question, to get the avg. velocity during the time what should i do? i know it is not just to add the 2 velocities given and divide by 2

A 500kilogram sports car accelerates uni
formly from rest, reaching a speed of 30 me ters per second in 6 seconds. During the 6 seconds, the car has traveled a distance of how many meters?? i got 180m is that correct? i used : distance = avg. velocity * change in time = (30m.s) * 6 = 180m

[tex]\frac{V_i + V_f}{2} = \frac{0+30m/s}{2}[/tex]
