## Homework Statement

A record of travel along a straight path is as

follows:

(a) Start from rest with constant acceleration of 3.95 m/s

2

for 16.5 s;

(b) Constant velocity of 65.175 m/s for the

next 0.789 min;

(c) Constant negative acceleration of

−10.4 m/s

2

for 3.52 s.

What was the total displacement x for the

complete trip?

Answer in units of m

## Homework Equations

I had my physics teacher help me along. I know that you need to find and add all of the displacements, but I still can't seem to get the right answer.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't remember exactly what I did, but I got these numbers for the displacement for each section of the problem.

a)537.694

b)3085.38

c)-36.608
