    Integration of Vector

    If \vec{V(t)} is a vector function of t, find the indefinite integral
    \int (\vec{V}\times \frac{\mathrm{d^2\vec{V}} }{\mathrm{d} t^2})dt

    You need to be a bit more explicit. You have the V is a function of time, but then you are differentiating with respect to x. Is there an explicit relationship between x and t or is x an implicit function of t.

    Re: Integration of Vector

    Sorry for my mistake, it should have been t instead of x. Now, how to proceed?
