Chapter 1.1, Problem 2dT

D. Review your earlier interpretation of the speed for your small tape segment. (See section I.)
Is that interpretation valid for the entire motion that generated the tape?

Based on the speed for your piece of tape, could you successfully predict how far the object would move in: 1/60 th s ? 2/60 th s ? 1 s?

How can you modify the interpretation of the speed so that it applies even to motion with varying speed?

What name is given to a speed that is interpreted in this way?

I PRELIMINARY QUESTIONS 1. One of the timing devices Galileo used was his pulse. Drop a rubber ball from a height of about 2 m and try to determine how many pulse beats elapsed before it hits the ground. What was the timing problem that Galileo encountered? 2. Now measure the time it takes for the rubber ball to fall 2 m, using a watch or clock with a second hand or seconds display. Did the results improve substantially? 3. Roll the hard ball down an incline that makes an angle of about 10° with the horizontal. First use your pulse and then your watch or clock to measure the time of descent. 4. Do you think that during Galileo's day it was possible to get useful data for any of these experiments? Why?

What was Eliana’s running speed from her house to the park? Give Units. c. What was Eliana’s running speed 25 minutes after she started her run? How does your answer relate to the slope of the graph? d. What was Eliana’s running speed from the park to her house?
For the question below, it will help if you draw a figure and put in it all the given information. At one point during the Oman bicycle race, three racers are riding along a straigh section of road.
