**The Equations of Motion**

Kinematics The Equations of Motion

Equations of Motion The equations of motion all apply to a body moving… …with constant acceleration …in a straight line. They can also be applied to projectile motion.

3
**1. The average velocity equation:**

We know that if an object accelerates uniformly from an initial velocity (u) to a final velocity (v) over a time (t) then… If it has travelled through a displacement (s) then also… So… Or… Average velocity = u + v Average velocity = s t s = u + v t a s = ½ (u + v) t

4
**2. The acceleration equation**

We know that acceleration is given by… Rearranging gives… Acceleration = v - u t v = u + at b

5
**3. The displacement equation**

Substituting b into a gives… So… s = ½ (u + u + at) t s = ½ (2u + at) t c s = ut + ½ at2

6
**The fourth equation t = 2s (u+v) (v–u) (u+v) = 2as v = u + a 2s (u+v)**

Rearranging a gives… Substituting into b gives… Rearranging… So… Expand the brackets… Simplifies to… t = s (u+v) (v–u) (u+v) = 2as v = u + a 2s (u+v) uv + v2 – u2 – uv = 2as v-u = 2as (u+v) v2 = u2 + 2as d

7
Note: When recalling the equations of motion, check for homogeneity if you’re not sure. e.g. s = ut + ½ at2
