a) positive direction: t 6s; negative direction: 2s < t < 6s

b) 7 m

c) 71 m

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

v (t) = 3t^2 - 24t + 36 [0, 7]

Find:

a) The value of time when particle is moving in positive direction:

The change in direction of the particle can be determined by v (t) > 0

Hence,

0 < 3t^2 - 24t + 36

0 < t^2 - 8t + 12

0 < (t - 2) * (t - 6)

t 6s

The particle travels in positive direction in the interval t 6s, While it travels in negative direction when 2s < t < 6s.

b) The displacement ds over the given interval [ 0, 7 ]

ds = integral (v (t)). dt

ds = t^3 - 12t^2 + 36t

ds = 7^3 - 12*7^2 + 36*7

ds = 7 m

c) Total distance traveled in the interval:

Total distance = ds (0-2) + ds (2-6) + ds (6-7)

D = 2 * (2^3 - 12*2^2 + 36*2) - 2 * (6^3 - 12*6^2 + 36*6) + 7

D = 2*32 - 2*0 + 7

D = 71 m
