t = 0

Work Step by Step

In the previous part of the problem we found that $v=20−15t^2 $ To find the acceleration equation we need to find the derivative of the velocity equation or $\frac{d}{dt} (20 - 15t^2) = -30t $ Therefore $ a = -30t $ To find when acceleration is equal to 0 we set a = 0 and solve for t 0 = -30t and therefore, acceleration is 0 when t =0
