The position of a particle moving on a horizontal line is given by s(t)=2t^3-15t^2+24t-5, where s is measured in feet and t in seconds.
a: What is the initial position of the particle?
b: What is the average velocity of the particle on the interval [0,2]?Indicate units of measure
c: Find a formula for the instantaneous velocity of the particle.
d: When is the particle at rest?
e: When is the particle moving to the right? When is it moving to the left?
f: At t=2 seconds, is the particle moving away from the origin or towards the origin?
h: What is the average acceleration of the particle on the interval [0,2]?
i: Find a formula for the instantaneous acceleration of the particle.
j: At t=2 seconds, is the particle slowing down or speeding up?
