The position of a particle is given by the function x = ( 8t^3 - 3t^2 + 5) m, where t is in s.
(a) At what time or times does vx = 0 m/s?
(b) What are the particle's position and acceleration at t1?
What are the particle's position and acceleration at t2?
v1 = v0 + at
x1 = x0 + v0 + (1/2)at^2
vx = dx/dt
a = dv/dt
The Attempt at a Solution
Quite honestly, I'm not sure where to begin with this problem. If someone could help me to start it that would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
