Acceleration Part 2

Acceleration Part 2


In this packet we continue our discussion on acceleration by relating it to displacement, velocity, and time. We will derive equations which describe the linear motion of an object under constant acceleration. Finally we will go over some practice problems to help determine how to choose the right governing equation.

The two equations we will be deriving are:
An equation dependent on acceleration, initial velocity, displacement, and time
An equation dependent on acceleration, velocity, and displacement
