**1. We are given a simple acceleration vs time curve. It shows that the object has a constant acceleration of 5 m/s2 for 10 seconds, and then from 10 to 26 seconds has a constant acceleration of 15 m/s2. The question asks me to give an equation for velocity as a function time using only the variable T.**

**2. V = V initial + a*t**

?

?

**3. This is a multi part question, and I have gotten the first part correct. The first part simply asks for the equation from 0 < t <10. I responded that v = 5*t , and got it correct. A similar question within the same problem asks, "what if the initial velocity is 35 m/s" I responded v = 35 + 5*t and got it correct.**

The next part is to give an equation (using the same variables) but for 10 < t < 26. I have tried v= v initial +at to no avail.

The next part is to give an equation (using the same variables) but for 10 < t < 26. I have tried v= v initial +at to no avail.

The real problem is, because this is online homework, I can't tell if I am doing it wrong, or typing it wrong. I've looked through the book and my notes, and have not seen anything to help me in the right direction.

So what I am doing wrong for the 10 < t < 26 portion?

Thanks to all.
