Ah looks like I was right then, and thank you for the hint ;)
I've got another question.
A flywheel car is capable of giving a car a constant acceleration of 0.5m/s2, but only for as long as it is wound up for (if it is wound up for 5 seconds it will accelerate at 0.5m/s2. Once the flywheel...
Homework Statement
x(t) = -0.01t^3 + t^2 - 20t + 4
Homework Equations
Min is when t = 12.3
Max is when t = 54.4
The Attempt at a Solution
I got -0.03t^2 + 2t - 20 as the derivative.
I substituted in t = 12.3 and 54.4 and got 0.02 and 0.19 which don't seem right at all.
Because...
Homework Statement
A rocket, initially at rest on the ground, accelerates straight upward from rest with constant acceleration 53.9 m/s^2. The acceleration period lasts for time 7.00 s until the fuel is exhausted. After that, the rocket is in free fall.

Homework Statement
Draw the vector C = 1.5A -3B
(Mastering Physics problem)
A is 4.5 and B is 1.0
The Attempt at a Solution
I've tried it 4 times and still can't do it. I've looked at some sites but I guess I just don't understand it. I've heard of the head to tail method, or something...
