Find the average velocity in the time intervals

  1. Sep 23, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The position versus time for a certain particle
    moving along the x axis is shown in Figure 1.
    Find the average velocity in the time intervals
    0 to 2 s,
    2 s to 4 s,
    0 to 8 s.

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I do not understand the question?
    I want to know how to be dissolved

    On a distance/time graph, the velocity is the slope of the line. The average velocity between two points on the graph is the slope between the two points.
