Particle Acceleration (Posted on 2004-05-06) Difficulty: 2 of 5
A particle is travelling from point A to point B. These two points are separated by distance D. Assume that the initial velocity of the particle is zero.

Given that the particle never increases its acceleration along its journey, and that the particle arrives at point B with speed V, what is the longest time that the particle can take to arrive at B?

answer?? maybe | Comment 20 of 24 |

wouldnt the longest time be zero seconds well no time.

because youdont assume D is any amout of distance or V is any amount of speed. so points A and B could be on top of each other the same point.

so it never moved??
