An object is at rest at #(1 ,7 ,2 )# and constantly accelerates at a rate of #1 m/s^2# as it moves to point B. If point B is at #(3 ,1 ,4 )#, how long will it take for the object to reach point B? Assume that all coordinates are in meters.
We can solve this just a like a one-dimensional constant acceleration problem; the distance covered is
And since the acceleration
This is derived from the equation
