Question

Here are the positions at three different times for a bee in flight (a bee’s top speed is about 7 m/s). Time 6.6 s 6.9 s 7.2 s Position 1.8, 5.0, 0 m 0.5, 6.9, 0 m −0.4, 9.5, 0 m (a) Between 6.6 s and 6.9 s, what was the bee’s average velocity? Be careful with signs. vavg, a = 7.6739 (b) Between 6.6 s and 7.2 s, what was the bee’s average velocity? Be careful with signs. vavg, b = 4.58557 (c) Of the two average velocities you calculated, which is the best estimate of the bee’s instantaneous velocity at time 6.6 s? (d) Using the best information available, what was the displacement of the bee during the time interval from 6.6 s to 6.65 s? Δr = m

1. Answer:

(A.) (- 4.33, 6.33 , 0); (B.) (- 3.66, 7.5, 0); (C.) average at (A) (- 4.33, 6.33 , 0) ; (D.) (- 0.2165, 0.3165, 0)

Explanation:

Given the following :

Time – – – – – – – 6.6s – – – – – – – – – 6.9s – – – – – 7.2s

Position – (1.8,5.0,0) – (0.5,6.9,0) – – (−0.4,9.5,0)

(a) Between 6.6 s and 6.9 s, what was the bee’s average velocity?

Vavg = Distance / time

[(0.5,6.9,0) – (1.8,5.0,0)] / 6.9 – 6.6

Vavg = [(0.5 – 1.8), (6.9 – 5.0), (0 – 0)] / 0.3

Vavg = – 1.3 / 0.3, 1.9/0.3, 0/3

Vavg = (- 4.33, 6.33 , 0)

b) Between 6.6 s and 7.2 s, what was the bee’s average velocity?

Vavg = [(−0.4,9.5,0) – (1.8,5.0,0)] / 7.2 – 6.6

Vavg = – 2. 2/0.6, 4.5/0.6, 0/0.6

Vavg = (- 3.66, 7.5, 0)

c.) Of the two averages (- 4.3, 6.3 , 0) is closer to the instantaneous Velocity at 6.6s

D.) (d) Using the best information available, what was the displacement of the bee during the time interval from 6.6 s to 6.65 s?

Displacement = Velocity * time

Vavg between 6.6 to 6.9 ; time = (6.65 – 6.6) = 0.05 s

= (- 4.33, 6.33 , 0) * 0.05

= (- 0.2165, 0.3165, 0)
