Thus, the velocity is zero at t = 1 and t = 3. b) When is the body moving forward? backward? v(0) = (-)(-) = positive, moving forward on [0,1) v(2) = (+)(-) = negative, moving backward on (1,3) v(4) = (+)(+) = positive, moving forward on (3,?) c) When is the body's velocity increasing? decreasing? We equate a(t) to zero, the check the interval(s). a(t) = 2(t - 2) = 0 a(t) is zero at t = 2. a(0) = negative, velocity decreasing on [0,2) a(3) = positive, velocity increasing on (2,?)

Factoring the given v(t) we find Thus, the velocity is zero when t = 1 and t = 3. So we use those values for t in a(t) which we find by differentiating v(t) with respect to t, which is 2 is not a zero for v(t), but it is a zero for a(t), which tells us when the velocity changes the sign of its rate of change.
