A particle moves according to the position function.

[tex]s(t) = \frac{1}{3}t^3 - t^2-4t[/tex]

Find the position of the particle at t=1 and t=6.

To do this, Do i take s'(t) and then plug in the values for t?

then another part is to find the velocity of the particle at t...for that would i use the velocity function, finding the limit of t? I hope someone can help, thanks a lot!
