if you want to find the velocity function of a problem would you just take the 1st derivative of the original equation? for ex. s(t)=16t^264t+512?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok now my next question is when you are asked to find the acceleration of an object how would you do that? after finding the 1st derivative/velocity function?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a=dv/dt so a = d2v/dv2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the derivative of that function will tell you the speed it is going at any given position in time then

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea the reason why im asking this is because my professor gave us a question like this a while back and he asked for the velocity function, and then the acceleration. i got the velocity function no problem but then messed up and got the acceleration wrong. so just to clarify (velocity function = 1st derivative of original function, acceleration function = derivative of the velocity function?) thanks for all the help i really appreciate it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the derivative of velocity as part of acceleration.... if you do vectors
