When will the velocity be zero?

t is in minutes

s is in metres

2. Relevant equations

s = 4t^3 - 8t^2 + t - 50

3. The attempt at a solution

I came up with the velocity equation by taking the derivative of function s.

I came up with the acceleration equation by taking the derivative of the velocity function. I don't know how to figure out(solve) when the velocity of the particle will be zero? Help please?

The velocity at t minutes is given by:

v(t) = 12t^2 - 16t + 1

Acceleration is given by:

a(t) = 24t - 16
