Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0velocity is the rate of change of distance so it will be the slope at that point.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0V=m/s so take the distance and divide by time. It helps to look at Units in physics to figure out what equation to use.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is the question the change in velocity? At 3 secs it would be 1 m/s, but that doesn't seem right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no it says 'What is the velocity at 3.0 seconds?'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if its a distancetime graph then how is the distance decreasing. i guess its a displacementtime graph, then velocity at 3 seconds=3.53.0/3.0=1/6 m/s
