s

(d) What is the acceleration of the particle at the instant the particle is not moving (other than at t = 0)?
m/s2

(e) Determine the average velocity of the particle between t = 0 and t = 3 s.

1. x = 15t^2 - 2.0t^3
v = dx/dt = 30 t - 6 t^2
a = d^2x/dt^2 = 30 - 12 t

part a, just put in 3 for t in the above

part b
max position when v = 0
0 = t (30 - 6t)
so at t = 5 sec
then
x = 15*25 - 2*125 = 125

part c
max v when a = 0
t = 30/12
v = 30 (30/12) - 6 (30/12)^2

part d
not moving at t = 5 from part b
a = 30 - 12(5)

part e
Vmean (3) = x at 3 - x at 0
Vmean = [15(9) - 2.0(27) - 0 ]/3
