A 1.0-kg cart on a track experiences several different constant accelerations as shown in the animation (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). The red dot shows you where position measurements are taken. In addition, the graph of either the acceleration vs. time or the velocity vs. time is shown (use the check box to toggle between the two) along with data in a table. One cell of the table shows the calculation of the area under the curve (the integral ∫a dt or ∫v dt) as it is plotted in the graph shown. Restart.
View all five animations and answer the questions below for the acceleration vs. time graph.
