Consider a car whose position, \( s\), is given by the table

$PAR
Find the average velocity over the interval \(0 \le t \le 0.2\).
$BR
average velocity = \{ ans_rule(8) \}
(include \{ helpLink("units") \})
$PAR
Estimate the velocity at \(t=0.2\).
$BR
velocity = \{ ans_rule(8) \}

$PAR SOLUTION $PAR
The average velocity over the interval \(0 \le t \le 0.2\) is given by
$PAR
\(\frac{s(0.2)-s(0)}{0.2}=\frac{$a1}{0.2}=$b \) ft/s.
$PAR
The average velocity over the interval \(0.2 \le t \le 0.4\) is given by
$PAR
\(\frac{s(0.4)-s(0.2)}{0.2}=\frac{$a2-$a1}{0.2}=$c \) ft/s
$PAR
A reasonable estimate for the velocity at \(t=0.2\) is the average
\(\frac{1}{2}\cdot ($b+$c) = $v\) ft/s.
