The problem
I'm pasting the problem below mainly for the plot of y vs x.
A possible way to think of it
I suppose the important thing here is to find y(t) with the condition that a_{max}<a_{y}<a_{max}, and v_{y}(L/v_{p})=0
My attempt
I've modelled acceleration as a(t)=kt and got an equation for y(t) as a function of t^{3} which can be replaced by L/v. But the problem is that, plotting on gnuplot, the solution doesn't convince me. Would you give me some hints on how to model a(t), please?
