If the equation describing the motion of a rocket is(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

x = 10 + 5t^2, write an expression for the instantaneous speed of the rocket. What is the instantaneous speed at 5 s. What is the acceleration?

WHere do I begin? Do I need to take the integral anywhere?
