(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Body's linear equation of motion is s= A + B*t + C*t^3 (A= 2.0m, B = 3.0 m/s, C = 0.010 m/s^3) What is the velocity and acceleration of a body on t= 0 s and t = 10 s. Calculate the velocity and accelerations average values within first 10 seconds, starting from start of the movement.

3. The attempt at a solution

For the first part of problem, i took derivative of equation to get velocity and 2nd derivative for acceleration

s' = B + 3*C*t^2

s'' = 6*C*t

and calculated the values

Now for the second part, what i tried to do is replace t within the velocity equation with t=0 added by t= 1 added by t=2 and so forth all the way to 10 and divide the result by 10. I was wondering if this is the right way do this and if im correct is there a shorter way?

Thanks in advance
