When estimating distances from a table of velocity data, it is not necessary that the time intervals are equally spaced.
When estimating distances from a table of velocity data, it is not necessary that the time intervals are equally spaced. After a space ship is launched, the following velocity data is obtained. Use these data to estimate the height above the Earth's surface at 122 seconds. Report answers accurate to 1 places. This is not meant to be a trick question...be careful of the UNITS!
|t (sec)v (ft/s)|
lower estimate of distance traveled: I got 37037 which is wrong. I multiplied the #s in the second column times 7 except for 4234.
upper estimate of distance traveled = 66675 which is also wrong. I multiplied all the #s in the 2nd column by 7 except 0.
DId I do my math wrong? what did I mess up on? My asnwer is suppose to be in miles so idk if I need to convert feet to miles? it also says to report my asnwer to 1 places...
