Hi new here. stuck on this one: Find the acceleration of a particle at time "t" seconds given that the velocity is t sin 3t ms^1.

Thank you for the help; much appreciated. One more question..... A particle starting from rest moves with velocity v ms^1 where v=3t(t4) find the range of values of t for which acceleration is positive. 3t4*t is this the start? Last edited by skipjack; May 17th, 2017 at 06:24 AM.

$v = 3t(t4) = 3t^2  12t$ $a = 6t  12 > 0$ solve the inequality for $t$ ... Last edited by skipjack; May 17th, 2017 at 06:24 AM.
