An object is at rest at #(1 ,9 ,1 )# and constantly accelerates at a rate of #1/3 m/s# as it moves to point B. If point B is at #(4 ,4 ,5 )#, how long will it take for the object to reach point B? Assume that all coordinates are in meters.
We're asked to find the time
To do this, we can use the equation
We know it starts from a state of rest, so the initial velocity
To find the displacement
And our acceleration is given as
Plugging in known values and solving for
