Let s=30/(t^2+12) be the position function of a particle moving along a coordinate line, where s is in feet and t is in seconds. (a) Find the maximum speed of the particle for t>=0 . If appropriate, leave your answer in radical form. Speed (ft/sec): ? (b) Find the direction of the particle when it has its maximum speed.

    What's your question? Or do you just want someone to do your homework for you?

    You're given position as a function of time; the first step is to find speed as a function of time. What class is this for?

    ok, so, speed(as a function of time) is just the derivative of position(as a function of time); what's the derivative of the given position function?
