Unformatted text preview: t ) ! vx (0) = t "=t # ax (t " )dt " . t "=0 The displacement for an interval [ 0, t ] is the integral of the x-component of acceleration
with respect to time,
x (t ) ! x (0) = t "=t # vx (t " )dt " . t "=0 When ax (t ) is independent of time, i.e. constant, then
vx (t ) ! vx (0) = ax t ,
x (t ) = x (0) + vx (0)t + ax t ax t 2
however in this question, ax (t ) is non-constant so the correct answer is that you need to
integrate twice. Question 3 An airliner made an emergency landing at the Los Angeles airport with its
nose wheel locked in a position perpendicula...
