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.

    You know that the position as a function of time is: \[x(t) = 4\sin(3t)\] you also know that velocity is defined as: \[\frac{dx}{dt}\]

    can you find the derivative of: \[x(t) = 4\sin(3t)\]

    Yes that is the ans of a.what about b and c parts?

    so we want to find the maximum of: \[12\cos(3t)\]

    So this basically comes down to finding where the cosine function has it's maximums

    and then using the value for the maximum of a cosine in the equation

    yes, so the maximum value for the speed must be:

    Yes, because cos(x) = 1 when x = 0

    Now that you know the time at which it reaches its maximum speed, you can plug that into the first equation
