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

\[(a)\;(velocity)^{3/2} \quad (b)\;(velocity)^2 \quad (c)\;(velocity)^{-2} \quad(d)\;(velocity)^{2/3} \]

1 Answer

distance $x=(t+5)^{-1}$
velocity $v=\large\frac{dx}{dt}$$=-(t+5)^{-2}$
acceleration $a=\large\frac{dv}{dt}$$=2(t+5)^{-3}$
Therefore $ v^{3/2}=-(t+5)^{-3}$
Therefore $a=-2 v^{3/2}$
$ a\; \alpha\; v^{3/2}$
Hence a is the correct answer.
