mechanics help!! watch

1. 1) the velocity of a particle is given by v= (16t^2)i + (4t^3)j + (5t + 2)k m/s, where t is in seconds. If the particle is at the origin when t=0, determine the magnitude of the particle's acceleration when t=2s. Also, what is the x,y,z cooridnate position of the particle at this instant?

2) Balll A is released from rest at a height of 40ft at the same time that a second ball B is thrown 5ft from the ground. if the balls pass one another at a height of 20ft, determine the speed at which the ball b was thrown upward.

3) when a rocket reaches an altitude of 40m it begins to travel along the parabolic path (y-40)^2 = 160x, where the coordinates are measured in meters. If the component of velocity in the vertical direction is constant at Vy= 180 m/s, determine the magnitudes of the rockets velocity and acceleration when it reaches an altitude of 80m.

plz help me!!
thanks
2. 1) I get 37.1 ms^-2

and at that point 64i + 32j + 12K.
3. how did u solve it?!
4. Is it right?
5. yes
