Given the following function s(t)=3t^2-12t+15 for the displacement of an object, where s(t) is in metres and t is time in seconds, determine the displacement of the object when it is stationary.

When it is stationary, v = 0

If we take the derivative of the displacement fxn , it is the velocity function

   then we can set the VELOCITY function = 0 to find TIME to substitute in to the DISPLACEMENT fxn

 

the derivative is

    6t-12 = velocity

    6t-12 = 0   yields t = 2 sec

 

Substitute this in to the displacement fxn

3(2^2) -12(2) +15 = 3 m
