The position $$x$$ of a particle varies with time $$t$$ as $$x=at^2-bt^3$$. The acceleration of the particle will be zero at time $$t$$ equal to:

 1 $$\dfrac{a}{b}$$ 2 $$\dfrac{2a}{3b}$$ 3 $$\dfrac{a}{3b}$$ 4 zero

A particle moves a distance $$x$$ in time $$t$$ according to equation $$x = (t+5)^{-1}$$. The acceleration of the particle is proportional to:

 1 $$(\text{velocity})^{\frac{3}{2}}$$ 2 $$(\text{distance})^2$$ 3 $$(\text{distance})^{-2}$$ 4 $$(\text{velocity})^{\frac{2}{3}}$$

A body is projected vertically in the upward direction from the surface of the earth. If the upward direction is taken as positive, then the acceleration of the body during its upward and downward journey is:
1. Positive, negative
2. Negative, negative
3. Positive, positive
4. Negative, positive
