Homework Help: physics-speed

Posted by Damon on Tuesday, August 7, 2007 at 12:05am.

i need help with this one
thanks

A particle starts from rest and is acted on by a net force that does work at a rate that is proportional to the time t. The speed of the particle is proportional to:

a. sq. root t
b. t
c. t^2
d.1/sq. root t
e. 1/t



Work done is proportional to the integral of a constant times t. That means the work done is proportional to t^2. It will equal the final kinetic energy, which is proportional to v^2. Therefore v^2 is proportional to t^2, and v must be proportional to t.
