Question

If a rock is thrown upward on the planet Mars with a velocity of 10 m/s, its height in meters t seconds later is given by y= 10t - 1.86t^2.
(a) Find the average velocity over the given time intervals:
(i) [1, 2] (ii) [1, 1.5] (iii) [1, 1.1]
(iv) [1, 1.01] (v) [1, 1.001]
(b) Estimate the instantaneous velocity when t = 1.
