The acceleration of a particle is defined by a = -8 m/sec2. Knowing that x = 20 when t = 4 and x = 4 when v = 16, determine:
- The time when the velocity is zero
- The velocity and the total distance traveled when t = 11
The Attempt at a Solution
I think once I get part 'a' I can do part 'b'. Here is my attempt:
a = -8m/sec2
V = -8t + C.
How can I get C? Do I need to use another representation of acceleration? I am not sure where to go.
Any advice greatly appreciated!
