Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0U need to find {s'(2) + s'(2.1)}/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why it divide by 2? can u explain to me?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because we are calculating avereage of two velocities

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh like that..if we want to calculate average between 3 velocity,, we should divide by 3 also?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok.... i would like to ask u something.. if the question ask to find instantaneous velocity at t=2.. what the mean of instantaneous/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Umm, one thing I'd like to note is that @sauravshakya 's method for finding the average value works for lines. In this case velocity is indeed linear so it will work, though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait, actually @sauravshakya , the units don't seem to work out with your method. You have \(\frac{m/s}{s}\), which is acceleration.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think we don't need to do any calculus at all here. It's just: \[ \large \frac{s(t_f)s(t_i)}{t_ft_i} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@wio your formula when i should use it? what the kind of question?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Anyway, I'm thinking that the average velocity, given velocity is: \[ \large \overline{v(t)} = \frac{1}{t_ft_i}\int_{t_i}^{t_f} v(t) dt \]Note that \(s(t) = \int v(t) dt \), which gives us (by fundamental theorem of calc: \[ \frac{s(t_f)  s(t_i)}{t_f  t_i} \]
