To get a feeling for how extremes of a variable affect an equation, suppose that the acceleration of a body is given by a = [(at^2 - bt)/(t+c)d] + et^2/(t-c)d where a,b,c,d,e are constants : (a) Determine the value of a when t=0. (b) Find the value of a when t>>c.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(c ) find the value of a when t<<c.

I tried approximation by binomial theorem but I got some meaningless equations (for me ) so I couldnt find such a feeling

Please help me with this problem.

Thanks
