Velocity

 

Dana is testing the acceleration system of a car. She records the velocity of the car every second and wants to know the distance that the car moves during ten seconds.

What is known:

The velocity of the car at each second is given in the table on the left.

   
  Questions

  How far does the car move during the first 10 seconds?
   
  Approach

 
  • The distance equals the velocity multipled by the time.
  • The total distance is the sum of the distance moved in each second.
