If a ball is thrown into the air with a v of 40 ft/s, it's height in ft t seconds late is given by y= 40t-16t^2. Find the avg velocity for the time period beginning when t=2 & lasting 0.5 sec, 0.05 sec?

    so the distance covered / the time interval is what you're looking for...

    Yea it's like u plug in the 2 in the equation and then distance covered in 2-distance coverd in 2.5/2-2.5
