A particle

A particle moves in a straight line so that its velocity (m/s) at time t seconds is given by v(t) = 3t2-4t-4, t > 0.

Initially the particle is 8 meters to the right of a fixed origin.

After how many seconds is the particle at the origin?

Correct answer:

t =  2 s

Step-by-step explanation:

v(t)=3t24t4 s(t)=v(t)dt s(t)=t32 t24t+C C=8  s(t)=0 t32 t24t+8=0 t1=2 t2=2  t>0 t=t2=2 s
