PROBLEM DESCRIPTION

Wile E. Coyote is planning yet another trap for the Road Runner. Mr. Coyote
has noticed that whenever the Road Runner runs right past Albuquerque,
the birdís velocity as a function of time can be described by the vector:

(where time is in seconds and velocity is in m/s).
In order to capture the Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote must determine
,
the bird's position vector as a function of time. The Coyote observed
that at time t = 0, the Road Runner was at position
, (where the position is in meters).
What is ?
