The fastest car in the world, the Bugati Veyron, can reach a top speed of 408 km/h. The graph represents its velocity.

This figure has a graph in the first quadrant. It increases to where x is approximately 03:00 mm:ss and then drops off steep. The maximum height of the graph, here the drop occurs is approximately 420 km/h.

23. [T] Use the graph to estimate the velocity every 20 sec and fit to a graph of the form [latex]v\left(t\right)=a{\text{exp}}^{bx}\sin\left(cx\right)+d[/latex]. (Hint: Consider the time units.)

24. [T] Using your function from the previous problem, find exactly how far the Bugati Veyron traveled in the 1 min 40 sec included in the graph.
