I would say this is just a minor typo. Just use V(t) = | t - 5 | - 3.

What is the velocity V at t = 5 + tiny bit? At t = 5 - tiny bit ?

If V(t)=|x-5|-3 Find the acceleration at t=5

but there is no "V(t)", there is only a V(x)

edit

If V(t)=|t-5|-3 Find the acceleration at t=5

for t–5≥0, V(t)= t-5-3 = t–8

a = V' = 1

for t–5<0, V(t)= –t+5-3 = –t+2

a = V' = –1

so acceleration is discontinuous at t=5

My bad I meant it to be v(t)=|t-5|-3

If that equation represents the velocity then what would be the acceleration at t=5? - Log in to reply to the answers
