1. guys i need to calculate velocity of a particle from its acceleration i have to integrate the acceleration right so help me integrate because the function is -1.5(m/s^3)^1/2 .....and i don't know how to do it like this.

help people

You have to integrate it in terms of a, not what the value actually is... I think.

Example, if you have y = x, you would integrate it to give 0.5x^2. If x = 1, then the integral will be 0.5.

Whereas if you integrated y = 1 you just get 1x which is 1 when x = 1.
3. soo should i ignore the s^3 parts and just deal with the numbers
