In this lesson, Professor John Zhu gives an introduction to position, velocity and acceleration. He explains the position function, velocity function and acceleration function. He then shows you several example problems.
Velocity is the derivative of the
Acceleration is the second order
derivative of the position function
Critical points: evaluate “t”
when desired function = 0
Understand problem context or
meaning to setup problem
