Classical Mechanics: a Critical Introduction

... x(t) = (9/4)t4 + c where c is any constant (the proof is simply to calculate dx/dt and verify that we obtain the desired v(t)). The appearance of the arbitrary constant c in x(t) is not surprising, since knowledge of the velocity at all times is not quite sufficient to fully determine the position a ...

We have seen in the previously chapters that in the study of the motion we have to answer to two questions (which will remain the same for the bodies) namely: which is the position of ...
