When we estimate distances from velocity data, it is some- times necessary to use times $t_{0}, t_{1}, t_{2}, t_{3}, \ldots$ that are not equally spaced. We can still estimate distances using the

time periods $\Delta t_{i}=t_{i}-t_{i-1} .$ For example, on May $7,1992$ the space shuttle Endeavour was launched on mission STS- 49 , the purpose of which was to install a new perigee kick motor in an Intelsat communications satellite. The table, provided by NASA, gives the velocity data for the

shuttle between liftoff and the jettisoning of the solid rocket boosters. Use these data to estimate the height above the earth's surface of the space shuttle Endeavour, 62 seconds after liftoff.

Let $A$ be the area under the graph of an increasing continuous function $f$ from $a$ to $b,$ and let $L_{n}$ and $R_{n}$ be the approximations to $A$ with $n$ sub intervals using left and right

endpoints, respectively.

$$R_{n}-L_{n}=\frac{b-a}{n}[f(b)-f(a)]$$
