"A particle moves along the x-axis so that its velocity at time T is given by:
At T=0 the particle is at position x=1.
a) Find the acceleration of the particle at time T=2. Is the speed of the particle increasing at T=2? Why or why not?
b) Find all times T in the open interval 0<T<3 when the particle changes direction. Justify your answer. "
So I know to get the acceleration you have to derive the velocity function. This derivation consists of product quotient and chain rule.
So I got
Then you would just substitute in 2 for t to find the acceleration at t=2 right? Is this the correct derivative of the velocity function, and how would you go about part b?
