## Question:

A particle moves along a straight line and has acceleration given by {eq}a(t)=t ^2-2 {/eq} at time t. Its initial velocity is v(0) = 3 m/s and its initial displacement is s(0) = 1.

a) Find its position function s(t).

## Application of Differential Equation:

If the acceleration function of an object is given, then to find the position function the acceleration function has to be integrated twice. The constants of integration can be determined using the given condition of velocity and displacement.

## Answer and Explanation: 1
