Formula for Average Acceleration
Average acceleration = change in velocity / change in time
Change in Velocity equals
Velocity of final - Velocity of initial
Acceleration due to Gravity equals
formula for Velocity with constant Acceleration
V-initial^2 = V-initial^2 + 2a(d-final--d-initial)
formula to find the displacement of an object moving with constant acceleration
d-final = d-initial + (V-initial x time) + 1/2a (t^2)
formula to fund the displacement of a free falling object
d-final = d-initial + (V-initial x time) + 1/2 (-9.8 m/s^2)(t^2)
found by drawing a tangent line on the velocity-time graph at a selected point
= the slope
instantaneous acceleration
the rate at which an object's velocity changes
change in velocity during some measurable time interval divided by that time interval
average acceleration
the motion of a body when air resistance is negligible and action can be considered doue to gravity alone
free fall
