## Homework Statement

The acceleration of a particle is defined by a = -8 m/sec

^{2}. 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 travelled when t = 11

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I think once I get part 'a' I can do part 'b'. Here is my attempt:

a = -8m/sec

^{2}

So

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!
