    I only got to the part: dy/dt = 2at/3y^2

    Just derive again, so you can solve the d^2y/dt^2. :))

    let it remain as 3y^2=2at..differntiate again....using multiplication rule....

    it says the answer is: -2a/9y^2 but I am getting a different answer

    is "a" here constant?

    for easier calculation, you can factor out 2a/3 and just derive (t/y^2)

    could you show me the first step for the second derivative? maybe I did something wrong

    may be u need to substitute y as (at^2)^2/3

    I got: (6ay^4 - 8a^2 t^2 y)/9y^6 I think I am doing something wrong.

    \[y' = \frac{ 2at }{ 3y^2 }\], right? Therefore, \[y' = \frac{ 2a }{ 3 } (\frac{ t }{ y^2 })\] \[y'' = \frac{ 2a }{ 3 } [\frac{ y^2 - 2tyy') }{ y^4 }]\] \[y'' = \frac{ 2a }{ 3 } \frac{ y^2 - 2ty(\frac{ 2a }{ 3 })(\frac{ t }{ y^2 }) }{ y^4 }\] Simplifying this equation we will get. \[y'' = \frac{ 2a }{ 3 } [ \frac{ 3y^4 -4at^2y }{ 3y^6 }]\]

    That's what I got. I think there is some typo in my answer sheet. Thanks :)

    @moongazer, it isn't the answer in simplest form. Maybe you can continue this and let us verify if we get the same answers.

    @myininaya could you simply it further? @Yttrium yes, I understood your solution

    Eye ball the numerator and the denominator. You should see they share a common factor.

    For our class, the definition of simplest form is that it is factored out completely. Just factor out some stuff and do cancellation.

    Replace it y^3 then combine like terms
