I have the following question in an assignment,
A particle moves along a straight line so that at time t seconds its velocity, is given by
Find the distance travelled in the first second.
Solving the equation, I got a general solution to the differential equation as:
Is it correct to assume that the initial condition would be s=0 at t=0?
I went on to solve the problem as s = 1.132m.
Can anyone check this for me and show me where I went wrong if there is a problem?
