A particle travels as a function of time according to the formulas = 60 + 14t + 0.07t3where s is in meters and t is in seconds. Find the acceleration of the particle when t = 3.


A particle travels as a function of time according to the formula

s = 60 + 14t + 0.07t3

where s is in meters and t is in seconds. Find the acceleration of the particle when 

t = 3.


Step 1

To find the acceleration by calculating the second derivative at the given instant.

Step 2

The velocity and acceleration are obtained as the first and the second derivatives of the function s=s(t) 

Step 3

acceleration at the given instant is calculated , by substituting the...
