The graph below plots the position versus time for a particular body moving along the x-axis. What is the average velocity over the following time intervals (in m/s)? (Indicate the direction with the signs of your answers.)
A coordinate plane has a horizontal axis labeled t (s) and a vertical axis labeled x (m). There are five connected line segments.
• The first goes from (0, 0) to (2.00, 14.0);
• the second from (2.00, 14.0) to (4.00, 6.00);
• the third from (4.00, 6.00) to (5.00, 6.00);
• the fourth from (5.00, 6.00) to (7.00, −8.00);
• and the fifth from (7.00, −8.00) to (8.00, 0).
