A particle moves along a line so that its position at any time t 0 is given by s H t L = t 2 - t - 4, where s is measured in meters and t is measured in seconds. Find H a L the displacement in the first 3 seconds H b L the average velocity in the first 3 seconds H c L the acceleration at t = 3 seconds H d L where the particle is when s is a minimum H e L the velocity when t = 3 seconds H a L s H 3 L - s H 0 L = 2 - H - 4 L = 6 meters H b L average velocity = 6 meters ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
