Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points The velocity of a particle moving along the x axis is given by v x = a t b t 3 for t > , where a = 25 m / s 2 , b = 1 . 6 m / s 4 , and t is in s. What is the acceleration of the particle when it achieves its maximum displacement in the positive x direction? Correct answer: 50 m / s 2 . Explanation: The time when it achieves maximum dis placement is when its velocity is 0: v = a t b t 3 = 0 t ( a b t 2 ) = 0 . t = radicalbigg a b = radicalBigg 25 m / s 2 1 . 6 m / s 4 = 3 . 95285 s . The acceleration at this particular time is a x = d v x dt = d ( a t b t 3 ) dt = a 3 b t 2 = a 3 a = 2 a = 2 (25 m / s 2 ) = 50 m / s 2 . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points The velocity of a particle moving along the x axis varies in time according to the expression v ( t ) = α β t 2 where...
