Summary Lecture 2 { Acceleration a = Acceleration is change in velocity over change in time { Uniformly Accelerated Motion a = constant v o = velocity at t = 0 x o = position at t = 0 x = x 0 + v 0 t + a/2 t 2 v = v 0 + a t v = (v + v 0 )/ 2 v 2 = v 0 2 + 2a (x - x 0 ) { We will use these equations a lot v – v o t
