1. A body is moving along a straight line with a velocity which varies according to the equation v=9t^2+2t, where v is in feet per second and t is in seconds. Find the expression for the distance as a function of time.
A. 3t^3+t^2+C
B. 3t^3+2t^2+C
C. 18t+C
D. 20t+C

My answer is B.

    recall that velocity is the change in position over change in time, or:
    v = dx/dt
    where x=distance, and t=time
    thus equating this to the given function,
    dx/dt = 9t^2 + 2t
    dx = (9t^2 + 2t)dt
    x - xo = 3t^3 + t^2 + C
    if we assume that the initial displacement is zero or xo = 0, this becomes:
    x = 3t^3 + t^2 + C

    your answer is correct~! :D
