Unformatted text preview: a) When is the particles velocity zero? The velocity of the particle is given by the time derivative of the position function. v = 12 12t 2 Setting the velocity to be zero, we solve the equation for t. 12 12t 2 = 0 t = 1 s b) When is the particles acceleration zero? The time derivative of the velocity function yields the acceleration of the particle. a = -24t Set the acceleration to be zero and solve for t. -24t = 0 t = 0...
