Problem 2f
Textbook Question

A cat walks in a straight line, which we shall call the x-axis, with the positive direction to the right. As an observant physicist, you make measurements of this cat’s motion and construct a graph of the feline’s velocity as a function of time (Fig. E2.30). (b) What is the cat’s acceleration at t = 3.0 s? At t = 6.0 s? At t = 7.0 s?
