A particle’s acceleration is described by the function ax = (10 − 1) m/s2, where t is in s. Its initial conditions are x 0 = 0 m and v 0x = 0 m/s at t = 0 s.
a. At what time is the velocity again zero?
b. What is the particle’s position at that time?
Step 1 of 2
We are required to calculate the time when the velocity will be zero.
The acceleration function is given as,
When the velocity is ,
The velocity will be zero when the time is t = 20 s.
