Solutions

Chapter 3.8, Problem 7E

(a)

To determine

To find: The time duration for the particle to reach the velocity of 5m/s .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 7E

The time duration for the particle to reach the velocity of 5m/s is 4s .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The position function of a particle is given by,

  s=t34.5t27t

The time duration for the particle to reach the velocity of 5m/s is calculated as,

  s=t34.5t27tdsdt=3t29t75=3t29t7t23t4=0

Simplify further,

  t=4s

Therefore, the time duration for the particle to reach the velocity of 5m/s is 4s .

(b)

To determine

To find: The time duration for the particle to reach the acceleration zero.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 7E

The time duration for the particle to reach the acceleration zero is 1.5s .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The position function of a particle is given by,

  s=t34.5t27t

The time duration for the particle to reach the acceleration zero is calculated as,

  s=t34.5t27tdsdt=3t29t7d2sdt2=6t96t9=0

Simplify further,

  t=1.5s

The significance at this value of t is that the velocity is at the minimum value.

Therefore, the time duration for the particle to reach the acceleration zero is 1.5s .
