Hello,

I am having problem solving this problem (picture below). The figure IS drawn to scale. A = 70 Volts

Q1. What is the numerical value of V(2) on the graph (in volts)?

Q2. What is the numerical value of point B on the graph (in volts)?

Q3. What is the period for the function V3?

Q4. What is the average for the function V3 (over one period of time)?

2. Relevant equations

f(x) = y0 + k(x-x0)

period = 2pi/n

3. The attempt at a solution

For the Q1 and Q2 I have tried to find the slope:

deltaX = x1-x0 = 2.5 - 1.0 = 1.5

deltaY = y1-y0 = 0 - 70 = -70

f(x) = 0 + (-70/1.5)(x-1.0)

f(2.0) = (-70/1.5)(1.0) = -70/1.5 (which is not correct)

I went the same way for Q2. If I understand Q1 i'll do Q2 very easily.

for Q3 and Q4 I don't know how to do them at all. How should I apply period function into this graph?

Thanks in advance,
