# How to solve problems involving time dependent acceleration

[latexpage]

Here i tried to sum up the steps to solve problems involving time dependent acceleration. We can easily calculate the position of the particle/object

1. Consider that acceleration a is some function of time such that
$a=f(t)$
this equation can also be written in terms of velocity i.e.
$a=\frac{dv}{dt}=f(t)$                                        …..1
2. Now we integrate equation 1 as a function of time
$dv=f(t)dt$
$v=\int dv=\int f(t)dt +C$               ……2
here C is some constant of integration and can be calculated from the initial conditions.
3. Now we know that $v=\frac{dx}{dt}$ , using this in the solution of equation 2 we can easily find position of the particle.
