A particle moves along the +ve direction of x-axis. Its position x depends on time t as x=at3+bt2+c+d. Let dx/dt represent instantaneous velocity d2x/dt2 represents instantaneous acceleration (α) of the particle.The average acc. of the particle is defined as <α> =∫αdt/dt. Find the average acc. in time interval t=0 to t=1s.


Expert Answer

Step 1


Position of particle (x)=at3+bt2+c+d
