a.find the velocity of the particle at any time t>= 0

b. for what values of t is the velocity of the particle negative?

c. find the value of t when the particle is moving and the acceleration is zero. explain your answer choice

b) set x'(t) from above < 0 and solve

c) acceleration is the derivative of velocity, so differentiate x'(t) again, and set it equal to zero

**drwls**, Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 7:12pma) Take the deriviative of x(t)

b) Set the derivative = 0 and solve the equation for t

c) Take the derivative of v(t) and set that equal to zero. If there is more than one answer, take the one for which v is not zero.

We will be glad to critique your work.
