Problem 1.2

Task:

A point traversed half the distance with a velocity \(v_0\). The remaining part of the distance was covered with velocity \(v_1\) for half the time, and with velocity \(v_2\) for the other half of the time. Find the mean velocity of the point averaged over the whole time of motion.

Solution:
