## Exploration 2.5: Determine x(t) and v(t) of the Lamborghini

*Please wait for the animation to completely load.*

a. Find the position of the toy Lamborghini as a function of time, x(t), for each animation
**(position is given in centimeters and time is given in seconds)**.
Restart. Note
that the graph depicts the position as a function of time. Use the "check
function" button to see the actual position vs. time graph and use this as a
guide for your analysis.

*Remember to use the proper syntax such as: -10+0.5*t, -10+0.5*t*t, or -10+0.5*t^2. Revisit Exploration 1.3 to
refresh your memory.*

b. Find the velocity of the toy Lamborghini as a function of time, v(t), for each
animation **(position is given in centimeters and time is given in seconds)**. Use the
"check
function" button to see the actual velocity vs. time graph and use this as a
guide for your analysis. (If you have taken calculus, this exercise should
be particularly straightforward.)
