Velocity to Acceleration#

The velocity of an object moving along the x-axis is given by \(v_x\) = -\(ct^{-2}\), where \(c\) = 2.5 m/s and \(v_x\) and \(t\) are in metres per second and seconds respectively.

Part 1#

What is the instantaneous acceleration of the object when \(t\) = 4 s?

Answer Section#

  • 0.078 \(m/s^2\)

  • -0.078 \(m/s^2\)

  • -0.16 \(m/s^2\)

  • 0.16 \(m/s^2\)

  • The acceleration is 0 \(m/s^2\)
