You need to remember that derivative of displacement of a particle with respect to time is equal to velocity of particle such that:
`v = (dy)/(dt)`
`v = (d(a_2t^2 + a_1t + a_0))/(dt) =gt v = 2a_2t + a_1`
You need to remember that derivative of velocity of a particle with respect to time is equal to acceleration of particle such that:
`a = (dv)/(dt) =gt a = (d(2a_2t + a_1))/(dt) =gt a = 2a_2`
Hence, evaluating the acceleration of the particle under the given condition yields `a = 2a_2` .
