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

The acceleration of a particle is defined by the relation a=0.4(1-kV), where k is a constant. Knowing t=0 the particle starts from rest at x=4m and that when t=15s, V=4 m/s, determine....

a)the constant k

b)the postion when V=6m/s

c) the maximum velocity of the particle

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

a=0.4(1-kV)

0.4(1-kV)=dV/dt.........im lost after this, can someone just simply point me in the right direction.
