Solving for Particle Velocity

  1. Jul 4, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    This is more of a math question - I just want to know how I can find the value of t when v=0.

    0=5(t3/2)-(27/2)(t^1/2)+9(t^-1/2)


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I do not know how to solve this. Please show steps. Thanks.

    Hint: What happens if you multiply through by [tex]\sqrt{t}[/tex] ?
