A particle moves on a straight line so that its velocity at time t is given by v = sqrt(s)
where s is the distance from the origin.
s=1 when t=0, then what is the value of s when t=1 ?
I tried using parameters but I couldn't find a good way ... can someone help ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0velocity is rate of distance/time v=ds/dt = sqrt(s) rearrange variables so s is with ds ds/sqrt(s) = dt now integrate both sides integral 1/sqrt(s) = integral s^1/2 = 2*s^1/2 = 2sqrt(s) 2sqrt(s) = t + C solve for s sqrt(s) = t/2 + C s = (t/2 +C)^2 = t^2/4 +Ct +C^2 find C using initial conditions s=1 when t=0 1=C^2 >C=1 s = t^2/4 + t + 1 when t=1 s = 1/4+1+1 = 2.25 Hope this helps
