# Chapter 2 - Motion Along a Straight Line - Problems: 17a

$28.5$ cm/s

#### Work Step by Step

Average velocity : $v_{avg}=\displaystyle \frac{\Delta x}{\Delta t}=\frac{x_{2}-x_{1}}{t_{2}-t_{1}}$ Instantaneous velocity: $v(t)=\displaystyle \frac{d}{dt}x(t)$ --------------------------------------- $v_{avg}=\displaystyle \frac{\Delta x}{\Delta t}=\frac{x_{2}-x_{1}}{t_{2}-t_{1}}=\frac{50.25cm-21.75 cm}{3.00s-2.00s}$ $=28.5$ cm/s
