can someone please help me in how to go about solving this problem?
problem: A particle moves in a straight line and has acceleration 6cm/second square.Its initial speed is -2cm/second. Its initial position is given by f(0) = 9cm.
Find the position function f(x), where the input means the time.
here's what i know:
acceleration is f"(x) and speed is f'(x).
so i assume im looking for f(x).
but how do i setup the equation?
Looks good. Of course, you can only assume that those constant values are the same as the values given because they are the initial values. If you had been given values at any other point in time, you would have had to substitute the points in and solve for the constant.
