A particle moves along the xaxis with the velocity given by v(t)=3t/(1+t^2) for t >or equal to 0. When t=0, the particle is at the point (4,0). 1. Determine the maximum velocity for the particle. Justify your answer. 2. Determine the position of the particle at any time t. 3. Find the limit of the velocity as t>infinity. 4. Find the limit of the position as t>infinity.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11. a(t) = 3(1t^2)/(1+t^2)^2 max v at a=0, or t=1 v(1) = 3/2 2. x(t) = 3/2 log(1+t^2)+C at t=0, x=4, so 4 = 3/2 log(1+0) + C C = 4 x(t) = 3/2 log(1+t^2) + 4 3. v(t) → 0 as t→∞ 4. x(t) → ∞ that's what I've got so far. Does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Could somebody please check this to make sure it makes sense? 1. dv/dt = [(1+t^2)(3)  3t(2t)] / (t^2+1)^2 =[3 t^2 + 3  6 t^2 ] /(t^2+1)^2 zero when t= 1 (since t always >/=0) so the max v is at t = 1 then at t = 1 v(1) = 3/2 2. x(t) = 3/2 log(1+t^2)+C at t=0, x=4, so 4 = 3/2 log(1+0) + C C = 4 x(t) = 3/2 log(1+t^2) + 4 3. as t > oo, v> 3t/t^2 = 3/t = 0 4. as t >oo, x > (3/2)t^2 = oo
