Just making sure that the proper forumla to calculate a tangent on a graph, (Position vs. Time) that shows an accelerated motion is rise/run.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

And also, I would like to make sure that if it asks you to start at the point 0.15s, that as long as you draw the line to cross a point without going through the line, you can virtually pick any point on the x and y axis to produce the correct answer, as long as the line touches the starting point on the x axis.

Thanks for reading, and any response is greatly appreciated.
