In our world, there are two directions + and -

x = -6 m

A car has a velocity of -2.4 m/s for 36 seconds. What is its displacement in this time, and if it started at a position of +127.0 m, where will it end up?

v = x/tx = (-2.4 m/s)(36 s) = -86.4 m (-86 m)So we are at 127.0 + -86.4 = 40.6 m (41 m)

displacement -86 m, end up at 41 m W

A train starts at a position of -35.1 m and ends at a position of 12.5 m in a time of 13.8 seconds. What was its velocity during this time?

v = x/tx = 12.5 - -35.1 = +47.6 mv = (47.6 m)/(13.8 s) = 3.449275362 m/s 3.45 m/s

+3.45 m/s W

A train has a velocity of -25.2 m/s and ends up at a position of -57 m after a time interval of 15 seconds. What was its displacement during this time, and where did it start?

v = x/tx = x = (-25.2 m/s)(15 s) = -378 m (-380 m)Since it moved -378 m, it must have started + 378 m from -57 m, so it started at 321 m. (+320 m)

-380 m, +320 m W

v = x/t - time rate change of position (m/s)

a = v/t - time rate change of velocity (m/s/s)

v - Change in velocity (in m/s)a - acceleration (in m/s/s)

Example: A car goes from 0 to 27 m/s in 9.0 seconds, what is its acceleration?(show math, units, meaning, m/s/s, m/s2, ms-2)

a = v/t, a = (27 m/s)/(9.0 s) = 3.0 m/s/s

Example: a = v/tA rocket accelerates at 4.5 “g” s. What time will it take to reach the speed of sound (Mach I = 343 m/s) from rest?

1 “g” = 9.81 m/s/sso 4.5 “g”s = (4.5)(9.81 m/s/s) = 44.145 m/s/sa = v/t, 44.145 m/s/s = (343 m/s)/tt = 7.7698…t = 7.8 s

A car speeds up from 0 to 21 m/s in 5.3 seconds. What is their acceleration?

a = v/ta = (21 m/s)/(5.3 s) = 3.962264151 m/s/s4.0 m/s/s

4.0 m/s/s W

A train can accelerate at .15 m/s/s. What time will it take to reach its top speed of 24 m/s from rest?

160 s W

a = v/tv = 24 m/s, a = .15 m/s/s, .:. t = 160 s160 s

What is the final speed if a person accelerates from rest at 32 f/s/s for 2.7 seconds?

86 f/s W

a = v/tt = 2.7 s, a = 32 f/s/s, .:. v = 86.4 f/s86 f/s

What is your acceleration if your velocity goes from 35 m/s to 20. m/s in 4.7 seconds?

-3.2 m/s/s W

a = v/tv = -15 m/s, t = 4.7 s, .:. a = -3.1915-3.2 m/s/s

What is your final velocity if you are going 12 m/s and you accelerate at .48 m/s/s for the next 16 seconds?

20. m/s W

a = v/ta = .48 m/s/s, t = 16 s, .:. v = 7.68 m/s12 m/s + 7.68 m/s = 19.68 m/s 20. m/s

Consider the last problem:12 m/s + 7.68 m/s = 19.68 m/s vi + at = vf

New formula:vf = vi + at
