If a rock is thrown upward on the planet Mars with a velocity of 10 m/s, its height (in meters) after t seconds is given by H = 10t − 1.86t^2

 

Find the velocity of the rock when t=a.

The velocity function will be the derivative of the position function given...so

 

H '  =  10 -  2(1.86)t 

 

When t = a, we have 

 

H ' (a)   =   10 - 2(1.86)(a)  =   [ 10 - 3.72a ]  m / s
