Hi,

this is a problem I have . But because I cannot include the graph, I try to do via Microsoft Word. I

This is the problem:

Traffic signals are placed along a straight road at positions x = 0 m, x = 600 m, and x = 1200 m (see graph in attachment)). The time intervals during which the signals are green are shown by the thick lines ( in red) in the figure.

(a) Draw the displacement-versus-time curves (fastest and slowest) for a car that passes through all the lights when the car moves with constant speed.

(b) Draw a similar set of lines for a car traveling in the opposite direction.

(c) Assuming that the lights are timed such that a car passes through all lights in the middle of the time interval, what is the speed for which the lights are timed?

(d) What is the fastest constant speed of a car that makes it through all the signals, assuming it arrives at the first light at the optimal moment?

Thank you very much.

Brad

**put it as an attachment**. I hope that you will understand it.This is the problem:

**For info.:**

The grah is a 2 dimension space with time(s) on horizontal and the position x(m) in vertical.

The interval are put in red and I mentioned the time interval at the end of each line.Please help me with that . I do not understand itThe grah is a 2 dimension space with time(s) on horizontal and the position x(m) in vertical.
