Huh? I've got to find the velocity. I found the acceleration and I've integrated it, leaving the answer I have in part b). I just don't know how to find C.

*C*. Thanks in advance for helping me out.

the steps to your problems are along the lines of

(i) find the acceleration as other poster mentioned.

(ii) integrate/ solve the D.E. to give you the velocity function in terms of time (+C of course)

(iii) Now the problem is that you do not have the boundary conditions needed to find the +C (but you will have in a minute)

(iv) you now need to use the F provided in part (a) to find the velocity function for part (a) and then use this to see what the velocity was at 6 seconds.

(v) Use you info from part (iv) i,e, when t=6, v= ___ to find the value of you r missing C from step (ii) ...( C will of course be a vector)

(vi) should be easy now....

Well assuming that you did (a) correctly then you know that the answer will be found by using calculus...

Surely acceleration has to be constant to use suvat in order to get s = 45i + 67.5j This is not so!

*extremely*old thread! I'm sure they don't need help from 8 years in the future, so I'm going to close this thread due to age
