Definitions Velocity Velocity Change in position with respect to time Change in position with respect to time v = Δd/Δt v = Δd/Δt Which can be written as: (d final -d initial )/(t final -t initial ) Common notation: (d f – d i )/(t f –t i ) Acceleration Change in velocity with respect to time a = Δv/Δt Which can be written as: (v final -v initial )/(t final -t initial ) Common notation : (v f –v i )/(t f –t i )

Velocity to Acceleration v=Δd/Δt=(d final –d initial )/(t final –t initial ) v=Δd/Δt=(d final –d initial )/(t final –t initial ) a=Δv/Δt=(v final –v initial )/(t final –t initial ) a=Δv/Δt=(v final –v initial )/(t final –t initial )

Average Acceleration a =Δv/Δt=(v final –v initial )/(t final –t initial ) a =Δv/Δt=(v final –v initial )/(t final –t initial ) f = final f = final i = initial i = initial If t initial = 0 If t initial = 0 a = (v final – v initial )/t final a = (v final – v initial )/t final Or: Or: v f = v i +at f v f = v i +at f

Practice Problem A car accelerates from rest at 5 m/s2 for 5 seconds. It moves with a constant velocity for some time, and then decelerates at 5 m/s2 to come to rest. The entire journey takes 25 seconds. Plot the velocity-time graph of the motion. A car accelerates from rest at 5 m/s2 for 5 seconds.
