Relating Position, Velocity, and Acceleration for constant acceleration a , initial velocity v 0 , and initial position x 0 , x(t) = at 2 + v 0 t + x 0 This position function represents motion at constant acceleration, and is an example of how we can use knowledge of acceleration and velocity to reconstruct the original position function. Hence the relationship between position, velocity, and acceleration goes both

Unformatted text preview: ways: not only can you find velocity and acceleration from the position function x(t) , but x(t) can be reconstructed if v(t) and a(t) are known. (Notice that in this particular case, velocity is not constant: v(t) = at + v , and so v = v only at t = 0 .)...
