Hi there(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If an object is affected by space-dependent force (for example wind , or electric field, or whatever), one can calculate its speed at any point in space by integrating the acceleration along its path, but what about if the force was time dependent , like for example an AC electric field, so you need to consider time also.

So how does one go about calculating the objects position and speed at any point in time?

Let's simplify it to just one dimension, for example

thanks
