A spring hanging from the ceiling vibrates up and down. it's vertical position at time (t) is given by f(t)=4 sin(3t). (a) Find the velocity of the spring at time t. (b) What is the spring's maximum speed. (c) what is location when it reaches its maximum speed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You know that the position as a function of time is: \[x(t) = 4\sin(3t)\] you also know that velocity is defined as: \[\frac{dx}{dt}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1At what time does the speed become 12?

MrMoose

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, because cos(x) = 1 when x = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i put t=0 so position is zero?
