Acceleration in One Dimension Just as velocity is given by the change in position per unit time, acceleration is defined as the change in velocity per unit time, and is hence usually given in units such as m/s 2 (meters per second 2 do not be bothered by what a second 2 is, since these units are to be

Unformatted text preview: interpreted as (m/s)/s--i.e. units of velocity per second.) we can now immediately write by analogy: a(t) = v'(t) , where a is the acceleration function and v is the velocity function. Recalling that v , in turn, is the time derivative of the position function x , we find that a(t) = x''(t) ....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
