The distance s(t) is given by,

`s(t) = 4+3sin(t)`

The average velocity can be found according to following expression,

Average velocity = (Final distance - Initial distance)/Time

Distance at `t = pi/3`

`s(pi/3) = 4+3sin(pi/3) = 4+3(sqrt(3)/2)`

`s(pi/3) =` 6.598 cm

Distance at `t = (7pi)/3`

`s(pi/3) = 4+3sin((7pi)/3) = 4+3sin(2pi +(7pi)/3) = 4+3sin((pi)/3)`

s((7pi)/3) = 6.598 cm

Therefore,

Average velocity = (6.598 - 6.598)/(7pi/3 - pi/3)

= 0 `cms^(-1)`

The average velocity is 0 cm/s
