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?

MrMoose Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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

MrMoose Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and then using the value for the maximum of a cosine in the equation

MrMoose Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So, what is the maximum of a cosine function?
 one year ago

MrMoose Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, so the maximum value for the speed must be:

FaisalAyaz Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i think 12

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

FaisalAyaz Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
don't know.may be 0
 one year ago

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

MrMoose Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Now that you know the time at which it reaches its maximum speed, you can plug that into the first equation
 one year ago

FaisalAyaz Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
which first equation?
 one year ago

MrMoose Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the equation for position as a function of time
 one year ago

FaisalAyaz Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
f(t)=4sin(3t)

FaisalAyaz Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
what i do with this now? please explain
 one year ago

FaisalAyaz Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i put t=0 so position is zero?
 one year ago

FaisalAyaz Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok.Thanks a lot.
