An object is at rest at #(7 ,4 ,2 )# and constantly accelerates at a rate of #4/5 m/s# as it moves to point B. If point B is at #(3 ,1 ,9 )#, how long will it take for the object to reach point B? Assume that all coordinates are in meters.
Approximately 4.6 seconds
Assuming that the rate of acceleration is
The relationship between distance, acceleration (from zero), and time is given by the formula:
(using a calculator)
