The velocity function (in meters per second) of a particle in motion is given by v (t) = 3t 5, ﬁnd (a) the displacement and (b) the total distance traveled by the particle in the ﬁrst 3 seconds. Solution: Z (a) Here, 3 v (t) dt = 0 Z 3 3t 5 dt = 0 3 3t 2 2 5t = 0 27 15 = 2 3/2. So the displacement is -1.5 meters. (b) Note, total distance is given by, Z 3 |v (t)| dt = 0 Z 3 0 | 3t 5| dt = = Z 5/3 (5 0 5t 3t 2 2 3t) dt + ! 5 /3 Z + 0 3 (3t 5/3 3t2 2 5) dt ! 3 5t 5/3 = 41 6 So the total distance travelled is 41/6 meters.
