A 4.00-kg particle moves along the x axis. Its position varies with time according to x = t + 2.0t ^{3} , where x is in meters and t is in seconds. Find

(a) the kinetic energy of the particle at any time t

(b) the acceleration of the particle and the force acting on it at time t

(c) the power being delivered to the particle at time t

(d) the work done on the particle in the interval t= 0 to t = 2.00 s
