Average velocity from a position-time graph?

  1. Mar 28, 2010 #1
    what is the object's average velocity during the entire interval?
    ..i know velocity would be the slope..but there's different slopes so what do i do?
    does it have to do with instantaneous velocity?!

    physics makes me sad. :(

    Well there is no need to be. Average velocity is simply net displacement divided by time elapsed.

    So..2m/s [N]? :D

    For the complete path shown, yes.
