Refer to the following information for the next nine questions.

Use the given position-time, velocity-time, and acceleration-time graphs to determine the missing values for position, P, and the final velocity, v.

Use this set of graphs for questions 1-9.
 
 
True or False?  The cart in the above graphs in traveling in a positive direction.
 
True or False?  the cart is experiencing a constant positive acceleration.
 
What is the cart's initial speed? 

What is the cart's initial position? 

How much did the cart's velocity change from 2 to 14 seconds? 

What is the cart's final velocity at 14 seconds? 

How fast was the cart traveling at 8 seconds? 

How far did the cart travel between 2 and 14 seconds? 

What is the cart's final position at 14 seconds?
