How fast are you moving? How fast is how fast you are moving changing? Displacement, velocity, and acceleration form the art of understanding movement, Calculus-style.

The position (in meters) of an object moving in a straight line is given by \(s(t)=4t^2 + 3t + 14,\) where \(t\) is measured in seconds. What is the equation of the instantaneous velocity \(v(t)\) of the particle at time \(t?\)
