Two particles move along the x axis. For 0 is less than or equal to t is less than or equal to 6, the position of particle P at time t is given by p(t)=2cos((pi/4)t), while the position of particle R at time t is given by r(t)=t^3 6t^2 +9t+3.
1. For 0 is less than or equal to t is less than or equal to 6, find all times t during which particle R is moving to the left. 2. for 0 is less than or equal to t is less than or equal to 6, find all times t during which the two particles travel in opposite directions. 3. Find the acceleration of particles P at time t=3. Is particle P speeding up, slowing down, or doing neither at time t=3? Explain your reasoning. 4. Show that during the interval (1,3), there must be at least one instant when the particle R must have a velocity of 2.
