Today in class, we examined the concept of an average rate of change by analyzing different intervals of Usain Bolt's 100m World Record run at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. We used data from the article, "Bolt's 9.69s. Analysis of speed during the world record. How fast did Bolt run?" Please add a comment regarding the race interval that your group was responsible for. Include the calculation that you used to determine the average velocity. This may be a good opportunity to try out the sitmo link on the right-hand side of the blog.) See video.

average velocity for 20m-30m:

ReplyDelete=d2-d1/t2-t1

=30-20/3.78-2.87

=10/0.91

=10.09 m/s

Average velocity for 20 m to 30 m

ReplyDelete= d2-d1/t2-t1

= 30-20/3.78-2.87

= 10/.91

= 10.98 m/s

I got a different answer then you,magdalena

i got 11.5m/s for 30m to 40m

ReplyDeleteThe average velocity between the interval of 50 to 60 m:

ReplyDeleteDistance travelled(delta d =d2-d1)=

60m-50m=10 m

Time Elapsed (delta t= t2-t1)=

6.32s- 5.5s= 0.82 s

Average velocity(delta d/ delta t)= 10m/0.82s= 12.2 m/s

Interval: 50m - 60m,

ReplyDeleteDistance travelled was: 60m - 50m = 10m

Time Elapsed: 6.32s - 5.5s = 0.82s

Average Velocity: 10m / 0.82s = 12.2m/z

for the intervel between 30 to 40m the average velocity was 11.5m/s.

ReplyDeletethe distance travelled was 10m and the time elapsed during this interval was 0.87s. so in finding the average velocity you divide 10m/0.87s and you attain the answer 11.5m/s.

The interval is : 80- 90

ReplyDeletedistance travelled is 10m

time elasped was .83 seconds

10/.83 = 12.04 m/s

interval: 90-100m

ReplyDeletedistance traveled: 10m

time: 0.9s

average velocity: 11.1m/s

Interval: 0-10m

ReplyDeleteDistance Traveled: 10m

Time Elapsed: 1.85s

Average Velocity: 5.4m/s

interval: 40-50

ReplyDeletedistance travelled: 10m

time elapsed: 0.85s

average velocity: 10/0.85= 11.76m/s

interval: 30 to 40

ReplyDeletedistance: 10 m

time elasped: 0.91

average velocity: 11.49 m/s

same answer as Matt and John except I rounded to 2 decimal places

ReplyDeleteAROC [80-90]

ReplyDeletev=Δd/Δt

=d2-d1 / t2-t1

=90m-80m / 8.79s-7.96s

=10m / 0.83s

=12.048 m/s

BAM.

& kwon, i'm pretty sure you put your decimal place in wrong spot 'cause...

ReplyDelete1.18 m/s is pretty slow. :)

Usain Bolt from 40m to 50m.

ReplyDeletedistance travelled: 10 m

time elapsed: 0.85s

avergae velocity:11.8m/s

Mr.Bolt from 40m-50m

ReplyDeleted2-d1/t2-t1

=50m-40m/5.5s-4.65s

=10m/0.85s

=11.76m/s

THUS! Mr.Bolt lives up to his name.

Interval: 60-70m

ReplyDeleteDistance travelled: 10m

Time elapsed: 0.82s

Average Velocity: 12.20m/s

Usain Bolt from 90-100:

ReplyDeletedistance travelled = 10m

time elapsed = 0.9s

avg. velocity = delta d/delta t

= 10m/0.9s

= 11.1m/s

Interval: 70-80m

ReplyDeleteDistance travelled: 10m

Time Elapsed: 0.9s

Avg. Velo. :11.11m/s (rounded)

Usain Bolt from 70-80m

ReplyDeletedistance travelled = 10m

elapsed time: 0.9s

average velocity: 11.11m/s

lolwat pretty speed

Interval = 10m - 20m

ReplyDeleteDistance Traveled = 10m

Time Elapsed = 1.02s

Average Velocity = Delta Distance / Delta Time

= 10m / 1.02s

= 9.8m/s

Therefore from 10m to 20m Usian Bolt's average velocity is 9.8m/s.

BOLT : 70 - 80 M

ReplyDelete80m - 70m = 10 m

;therefore, he travlled 10 m

elapsed time : 0.9 s

10m/ 0.9s = 11.11 m/s

AVERAGE VELOCITY : 11.11 m/s

interval: 90-100m

ReplyDeletedistance traveled: 10m

time: 0.9s

average velocity: 11.1m/s

Interva is 60m to 70m

ReplyDeleteDistance travelled: 70m-60m= 10m

Time Elapsed: 7.14s-6.32s= 0.82s

Average Velocity: \Deltad \div \Deltat

=10m/ 0.82s

\doteq12.20m/s

Therefore, Usain Bolt's average velocity from interval 60m-70m was 12.20m/s.

ReplyDeleteok..I don't get how to use sitmo

ReplyDeleteinterval: 60m to 70m

ReplyDeletedistance traveled: 10m

time: 7.14s-6.32s = 0.82s

average velocity: 12.20m/s

the average velocity for the interval 60 70m is 12.20m/s

For interval 50m-60m

ReplyDeleteDistance travelled: 10m

Time: 6.32s-5.5s=0.82s

Average Velocity: 10m/0.82s=12.2m/s

Interval: 50-60 m

ReplyDeleteDistance travelled: 10 m

Time: 6.32s - 5.5s

= 0.82s

Avg velocity = 10/0.82s

= 12.20 m/s
