The power output from a trolley motor depends upon velocity P(v) = av(b^2-v^2). The power is 0 for v^2>b and "a" and "b" are constants. Determine the speed of the maximum power output and the speed of the maximum force exerted by the motor.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How do I begin this problem? I don't know how to start.
