Average Speed? How do I calculate??
How do I calculate average speed on a position time graph? Velocity time graph?
Thanks

For the velocity time graph, how do I get the average speed for the entire set of data? It starts at the origin, then goes up to (120,25) for A, and then the final point is F which is (720, -140)On a position vs time graph, the average velocity is found by dividing the total displacement by the total time. In other words, (position at final point - position at initial point) / (time at final point - time at initial point).
For a velocity vs time graph, you can simply do (Final velocity - initial velocity) / 2.
