I am just starting out in Mechanics at my University. (Mechanincs is also known as statics and dynamics). I am having trouble working (what should be a simple) problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is the problem:

Find the velocity X(with 1 dot above the x) and the position X as a functin of the time t for a particle of mass m, which starts from rest at x=0 and t=0, subject to the following force functions:

Fx=f0+ct

where F0 and c are positive constants

Any help is greatly appreciated.
