Hi everyone. I'm working on a calculus problem about distance. I haven't learned it yet, but I have done some research to find a way to solve it.
A particle moves on the x-axis so that its velocity at any time t≥0 is given by
Find the distance the particle has traveled from t=0 to t=2.
Should I just calculate: ? The answer for that is -10. Can distance be negative?
Thanks a lot.
