Thus we find that velocity vector at time t is

(5t+15, 5t^2/2, 4t^2)

Step-by-step explanation:

given that acceleration vector is a funciton of time and at time t

v(t) can be obtained by integrating a(t)

v(t) =

Thus we use the fact that acceleration is derivative of velocity and velocity is antiderivative of acceleration.

The arbitary constant normally used for integration C is here C vector = initial velocity (u0,v0,w0)

Position vector can be obtained by integrating v(t)

Thus we find that velocity vector at time t is

(5t+15, 5t^2/2, 4t^2)
