## Homework Statement

An object starts from rest and uniformly acquires a velocity of 20.0 m/s in 5.0 minutes. For the next 10. minutes the object moves with a constant speed. After 10. minutes moving at 20. m/s the object then again accelerates and reaches a speed of 15 m/s in the opposite direction in 3.0 minutes time.

Calculate the time at which the object changes direction

## Homework Equations

y=mx+b

v=d/t

## The Attempt at a Solution

made velocity time graph. tried to find the equation y=mx + b. already knew that slope + -.19 unknown what b is and i found that velocity = 0 when time is at 1005.275 seconds however it said this was wrong. I am very confused and jumbled. Unsure how to find displacement since it crosses the x-axis and moves into negative.
