    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The acceleration of a particle is directly proportional to the square of the time t...

    2. Relevant equations
    C = constant

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm just having a little difficutly with the wording.

    In this case could I write: a = C / t^2 ???
