Homework Help: Distance-Acceleration relation

  1. Feb 23, 2015 #1
    A question says; A particle moves along a straight line according to Eq s^2=at^2+2bt+c, s is distance travelled a, b , c are constamts . Then acceleration varies as what power of s?
    I have tried it but can't get anything out of it. Please help

    Hello Shayan, don't know if this is your first post on the homework forum, but the guys who run this thing insist you show what you've tried.

    Before that, you should start listing the relevant equation(s) that link s(t) and the acceleration.

    The relevant equation(s) are item 2 and the attempt at solution is item 3 in the template, that (for mysterious reasons) has disappeared altogether. Very strange. if I try to start a new thread, I really always get

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    2. Relevant equations
    3. The attempt at a solution

    and that is really (really) a very useful template :wink:
