Have dv/dx need to find dx/dt ? (have velocity w/ respect displace - find Accel?)
I'm trying to figure out this problem related to motion of a spring. I know the solution but I don't know how to make it work.
Thanks in advance (Nod)
I'm given velocity (v) = where 'x' is displacement
Normally velocity is a function of time, so this one has really thrown me.
I want to find a formula for Acceleration which would normally be quite easy, but the above formula is Velocity as a function of x.
I've done a bit of related rates & differentiating w/ respect other variables, but I can't figure that out for this one....
If Acceleration = = x
and I know (by differentiating the provided equation: --->
then how do I find please?
(btw, using trial and error on my graphics calculator, I think the Acceleration in this case is actually inverse to the displacement).
