    During a chemical reaction ? calc help

    During a chemical reaction , the mass in grams of a compound being formed is modeled by the function M(t) = 5.8t /3t+1.9t^2 , where t is the time after the start of the reaction in seconds . What is the rate of change of the mass after 5 secs



    Do i find the velocity of acceleration?

    thanks

    this is not a motion problem ... it's just asking for M'(5)
