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 124 seconds. t (sec) v (ft/s) 8 176 17 374 21 462 47 1034 60 1320 65 1555 124 4328 lower estimate of distance traveled = miles upper estimate of distance traveled = miles Report answers accurate to 1 places. This is not meant to be a trick question...be careful of the UNITS!
