Dear student,

a=-3v2

dv/dt=-3v2

dv/v2=-3dt

-1/v=-3t

So u get a relation between velocity and time..

a = dv/dt

a = -3v2            (given)

dv/dt = -3v2

dv/v2 = -3dt

-1/v = -3t + c        .............1

at t=0 , v = 1.5

c = -2/3

now eq 1 becomes

-1/v = -3t + -2/3           ................2

finally velocity becomes half of original= v = 1.5/2

after putting this in eq 2 we get

t = 2/9 sec

t =
