- please help on kinematics problem

- Relevant Equations
- v=ds/dt, a=dv/dt

A particle, P, starts from rest at a point X and moves in a straight line with an acceleration expressed as a=4t. After 2 seconds, the particle reaches Y and it stops accelerating. The particle leaves Y with a velocity -3ms-1, and finally comes to rest at Z.

(i) Find the value of t when the particle reaches Z. (answer is t=3.06s)
