The black dots at the top of Fig. Q2.2 represent a series of high-speed photographs of an insect flying in a straight line from left to right (in the positive x-direction). Which of the graphs in Fig. 02 2 most plausibly depicts this insect’s motion?

Why is the following situation possible?  Emily challenges her friend David to catch a \$1 bill as follows. She holds the bill vertically as shown in figure P2.29 with the center of the bill between but not touching David's index finger and thumb. Without warning, Emily releases the bill. David catches the bill without moving his hands downwards. David reaction time is equal to the average human reaction time.  Avg human reaction time is .2s.  Dollar bill is approx 15.5cm in length.    I need help explaining this. Thank you.
You are driving along Lawrence Ave. to speed up to try to make it through the intersection before it turns red (poor decision!). Your car accelerates at 1.3 m/s?. You reach the light after accelerating for 4.3 seconds. What is your speed at the light in m/s? 60 km/h. You see the traffic light ahead is still green and decide V, =v, +aAt A: Pictorial Representation Sketch showing events, describe events, coordinate system, label givens & unknowns with symbols, conversions B: Physics Representation Motion diagram, motion graphs, velocity vectors, events a +x t t C: Word Representation Describe motion (no numbers),-assumptions, estimated result (no calculation) D: Mathematical Representation Describe physics of steps, complete equations, algebraically isolate, substitutions with units, final statement of prediction E: Evaluation Answer has reasonable size, direction and units? Why?
A fox is chasing a bunny. The bunny is initially hopping east at 6 m/s when it first sees the fox. Over the next half second the bunny changes its velocity to west at 12 m/s and escapes. What was the bunny's average acceleration (magnitude and direction) during this half-second interval?m/s2 ?
