The acceleration of a particle is defined by the relation a = k√v, where k is constant.
Knowing that
x = 0 and v = 81 m/s at t = 0
and v = 36 m/s x = 18 m
determine
(a) the velocity of the particle when x = 24 m
(b) the time required for the particle to come to rest.
you know a = dv/dt . it can also be written as dv/dx * dx/dt. where x is the distance. so your dx/dt is nothing but v. To sum up. a = v*dv/dx = ksqurt(v). Now you can integrate it . the limits for x are 0 to 18. and v are 81 to 36. becareful with the signs. after ur done . you get the value of k. and also u get the equation of velocity vrs distance. <br />
<br />
a)substitute x = 24 , in the quation and u will get the velocity. <br />
b) you know velocity = dx/dt. intergrate it , u will get the time.
