**Unformatted text preview: **v = dx/dt and the solution you found for v to solve for x in terms of t. (Hint: Remember that at time t = 0 the position of the sled is x = 0 . So this part of the problem amounts to solving an initial valued problem dx/dt = f ( x ) , with the initial condition x (0) = 0. The right hand side of the equation is a function that does not depend explicitly on t ). (e) Use the solution you found in (d) to ﬁnd the time τ required to slow the sled to 15 mi/hr. (Hint: When the sled is slowed to 15 mi/hr, its position is at 2000 ft). 1...
