A particle moves along a horizontal line so that at any time t its position is given by x(t)=cost-t. Time is measured in seconds and x is measured in meters.
a.) Find the velocity as a function t. Use your answer to determine the velocity of the particle when t=pi/6 seconds. Indicate units of measure.
b.) Find the acceleration as a function of the time t. Use your answer to determine the velocity of the particle when t=pi/6 seconds. Indicate units of measure.
c.) What are the values of t,0≤t≤2pi, for which the particle is at rest?
d.) What are the values of t, 0≤t≤2pi, for which the particle moves to the right?
e.) At t=pi/6 seconds, is the particle speeding up or slowing down? Justify your answer.
