**Basic Physics**

First post so be gentle :). I have a couple of questions :)

1) The acceleration of a body is given by a(t) = 4t3 + 3ms-2. Find its velocity and displacememt if v(1) = 0ms-1 and x(1) = 2m

2) Calculate the momentum of a mass of 10kg when its velocity is 8ms-1

3) An object of mass 5kg moves from rest with an acceleration of 0.15ms-2 calculate its velocity,displacement and kinetic energy 10 seconds later.

4) In an experiment to determine the acceleration due to gravity you drop a dall bearing, from rest, through a vertical distance of 45m and find it takes 3 seconds to reach the ground.Calculate the acceleration due to gravity and your weight.

## The Attempt at a Solution

1) Displacement = x(1) = 2m - initial position which is = 0 so displacement = 2m

Velocity = displacement/time <-- cant figure this out :/

2) 10 * 8 = 80 m/s

3) again I cant seem to figure this out

4) g = 2(45m)/3s^2 = 10ms^-1
