(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A particle's velocity is described by the function [tex]v_x=kt^2 m/s[/tex], wherekis a constant andtis in s. The particle's position at [tex]t_0[/tex]=0 is [tex]x_0[/tex] = -6.90 . At [tex]t_1[/tex]= 1.00, the particle is at [tex]x_0[/tex]= 8.70 .

Determine the units of k in terms of m and s.

2. Relevant equations

None

3. The attempt at a solution

So I really have no idea what this question is asking. I tried integrating the velocity equation then solving for c and eventually k getting a value of 46.8. It's online homework and it wouldn't take that, even if I added m/s to the end.

I am pretty sure what I tried isn't remotely close to what I am supposed to be doing. Any ideas?
