I wasn't sure whether to put this in the math section or the physics section because it's a bit of an overlap problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I want to know how to find the position as a function of time of a particle given its acceleration as a function ofposition. I know this is some sort of differential equation but I'm confusing myself with it.

Any advice?
