a)What is the velocity of the particle at t=0

b)During what time intervals is the particle moving to the left?

c)What is the total distance traveled by the particle t=0 to t=2

**Steve**, Sunday, November 20, 2011 at 2:53pmI can't believe that is the correct equation of motion. 6^t will grow negative quite quickly. Since there's a typo in c-axis, I suspect there's another in the equation.

Sorry!!

**Steve**, Sunday, November 20, 2011 at 4:09pmThat's better!

x(t) is the position

x'(t) is the velocity

x'(t) = 3t^2 - 12t + 9

x'(0) = 9

particle moving to the left means velocity is negative.

3(t^2 - 4t + 3) = 3(t-1)(t-3) < 0

when 1 < t < 3

distance traveled is x(2) - x(0)
