The positions in m. of the left and right feet of two squash players (Ramy Ashour and Cameron Pilley) during an 8 second segment of their match in the North American Open in February 2013 are given in the excel sheet provided here. Using a centred finite difference scheme, compare the average and top speed and acceleration between the two players during that segment of the match. Finally, compare with the average speed of walking for humans.

Compare the average speed obtained and the speed of walking of humans.

Plot the obtained position components vs. time and velocity components vs. time for either of the players.

Then, comment on the obtained accelerations.
