If you know the acceleration of an object, how do you
find its speed and distance traveled at any given time?
(Assume straightline motion, constant acceleration.)
Assuming constant acceleration, show a complete set
of motion equations which will describe any motion
meeting this condition.
A ball is thrown upward with a velocity of 30 m/s.
Find its height and velocity after 1 second. Find its
maximum height. Find its total time of flight when
it reaches its original height.
How are instantaneous velocity and acceleration
defined in terms of derivatives?
Given a position as a function of time, how do
you find the acceleration?
Given acceleration as a function of time, how
do you find the position?
For an object with constant acceleration, show
that integration of the acceleration leads to the
motion equations for velocity and position.
