(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The acceleration of a particle is described by the following:

a=(2t -1) m/s^2

S_{o}= 1m

V_{o}= 2m/s

Find

a) velocity of the particle at 6 seconds

b) its position (S_{f}) at six seconds

2. Relevant equations

v=ds/dt

a=dv/dt

a*ds=v*dv

3. The attempt at a solution

Using integration I found velocity to be 32 m/s, (dv=a_{part}dt)

Now i'm stuck on part b and since i have yet to learn how to take a double integral to directly relate the acceleration of the particle to its position, I assume it must have something to do with avg velocity or avg acceleration... nonetheless im stuck on part b and have been for quite some time.
