- Homework Statement:
The graph above shows the velocity versus time for an object moving in a straight line. At what time after t = 0 does the object again pass through its initial position?
(A) 1 s (B) Between 1 and 2 s (C) 2 s (D) Between 2 and 3 s
- Relevant Equations:
- No equations!
I've understood that between time t=0 to t=1 sec (moving backward), the object is moving with increasing velocity in the negative direction, slows down, and comes to rest at t = 1 sec. At t = 1 sec, the object returns to its starting position, briefly rests, and then begins to accelerate (moving forward). My answer to this question is A, and the worksheet answer says B. Which is correct?
