at t = 1,
=2/3 (3 + 2/3)
= 2/3 * 11/3
Hi there, I've been working this problem forever and I cannot come close to the right answer...
A function of the position of a car being driven on a straight road, measured in feet from some fixed point is given by:
BTW: to avoid any confusion, the is raised to
Sorry, I could not get it to look right.
I am to determine the acceleration of the car when t=1. I know I have to take the second derivative of s(t) to get the right equation to plug t into, but I can't get it for the life of me... Any suggestions?
Hey thank you so much for showing me correct answer...
Can you elaborate a little bit on the computations you did to arrive at the second derivative?
When I computed the , I got
Is this correct for the first derivative, and if so, can you explain how you arrived at the second derivative?
