    velocity and distance

    A particle that moves along a straight line has velocity
    meters per second after t seconds.
    How many meters will it travel during the first t seconds?

    note that v(t) \ge 0 for all t.

    assuming the clock starts at t = 0 ...

    displacement = distance traveled = \int_0^t x^2 e^{-2x} \, dx
