Homework Help: Calculus help PLEASE

Posted by James on Tuesday, May 10, 2011 at 11:34pm.

It is known that an object traveling in straight line with velocity function v(t) = t^2-t, where v is measured in meters per second. Find following.

The position function s(t) when we know the position 5 meters after 2 seconds.

I tried to work this out and got s(t) = (t^3)/3 -(t^2)/2 + 13/3.

Find the displacement and total distance traveled from [0,6].

Displacement I got 54 meters, but I'm not sure how to find total distance.

Can someone help me please
