The V-S graph ( x axis as S and y axis as V)of a airplane on a runway is as follows: for 0-100 meters the velocity increases steadily in a straight line from 0-40 m/s. For the remaining 100 -200 meters, the velocity increases steadily from 40 -50m/s in a straight line. The slope is more in the first half. I need to find the acceleration of the plane at S=50m and S=150 m. I also need to draw an A-S graph.
The Attempt at a Solution
I tried to find out what the slope dv/ds was . Using the chain rule. dv/dt * dt/ds= a/v and that's 1/t. Didn't do anything else productive. Any help?
