## Answer to Problem 4E

The velocity at time is f'(t)=tet(2t)ft/sec_.

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

The given equation is as below.

s=f(t)=t2et (1)

Calculation:

Calculate the velocity at time t.

Differentiate the equation (1) with respect to time.

v(t)=f'(t)=t2(et)+et(2t)=ett2+2tet

f'(t)=tet(2t) (2)

Therefore, the velocity at time t is f'(t)=tet(2t)ft/sec_.

## Answer to Problem 4E

The velocity after 1 second is v(1)=0.3678ft/sec_.

### Explanation of Solution

Calculate the velocity after 1 second.

Substitute 1 for t in the equation (2).

f'(t)=tet(2t)f'(1)=1e1(21)=0.3678ft/s

Therefore, the velocity after 1 second is v(1)=0.3678ft/sec_.

## Answer to Problem 4E

The particle never is at rest when 0<t<2sec_

### Explanation of Solution

Calculate the time when particle will be at rest.

The velocity will be zero, when the particle is at rest.

Substitute 0 for v(t) in the equation (2).

v(t)=tet(2t)0=tet(2t)t=0sec2t=0t=2sec

Therefore, the particle at rest when t=0sec_ and t=2sec_.

To determine

Expert Solution

## Answer to Problem 4E

The particle will be moving in the positive direction within the time limits 0<t<2sec and t>2sec.

### Explanation of Solution

Calculate the time during which the particle will be moving in the positive direction.

If the particle moves in positive direction, the velocity at any time t will be greater than zero.

v(t)=tet(2t)>00<t<2;t>2

Therefore, the particle will be moving in the positive direction within the time limits 0<t<2sec and t>2sec.

## Answer to Problem 4E

The total distance travelled during first 6 second is f(6)=0.0892ft_.

### Explanation of Solution

Calculate the total distance traveled during first 6 seconds.

Substitute 6 for t in the equation (1).

f(t)=t2etf(6)=(62)e6f(6)=0.0892ft

Therefore, the total distance travelled during first 6 seconds is f(6)=0.0892ft_.

## Answer to Problem 4E

The acceleration at time is et(24t+t2)ft/s2_ and after one second is 0.368ft/s2_.

### Explanation of Solution

Calculate the acceleration at time t.

Differentiate the equation (2) with respect to t.

f"(t)=2et4ett+ett2f"(t)=et(24t+t2)

Therefore, the acceleration at time is et(24t+t2)ft/s2_.

Calculate the acceleration after 1 second.

Substitute 1 for t in the above equation.

f"(t)=et(24t+t2)f"(1)=e(1)(24(1)+(1)2)=0.368(1)

f"(1)=0.368ft/s2

Therefore, the acceleration after 1 second is 0.368ft/s2_.

## Answer to Problem 4E

The acceleration is positive when the value of time t is greater than 1.30sec and till 3.41 seconds. This will be increasing in speed. The acceleration is negative when the value of time is lesser than 1.3sec and this will be slowing down. 3.41 seconds. The acceleration is positive when the value of time t is greater than 3.41sec and till 4.5 seconds. This will be increasing in speed.

### Explanation of Solution

Calculate the time when particle is speeding up and slowing down.

Substitute 0 for f"(t) in the equation f"(t)=et(24t+t2).

0=et(24t+t2)t=3.41sec

Substitute 1sec for t in the equation f"(t)=et(24t+t2).

f"(1)=e1(24×1+12)=0.368<0

Substitute 4sec for t in the equation f"(t)=et(24t+t2).

f"(4)=e4(24×4+42)=0.0366>0

Therefore, the acceleration is positive when the value of time t is greater than 1.30sec and till 3.41 seconds. This will be increasing in speed. The acceleration is negative when the value of time is lesser than 1.3sec and this will be slowing down. 3.41 seconds. The acceleration is positive when the value of time t is greater than 3.41sec and till 4.5 seconds. This will be increasing in speed.
