Calculus III - 11.3 – Velocity and Acceleration Definition of Velocity and Acceleration If x and y are twice-differentiable functions of t , and r is a vector-valued function given by r ( t) = x(t) I + y(t) j , then the velocity vector, acceleration vector and speed at time t are as follows: Velocity = v ( t) = r (t) = x’(t) i + y’(t) j Acceleration = a (t) = r ’’ (t) = x’’(t) i + y’’(t) j Speed = [ ] [ ] 2 2 ) ( ) ( ) ( ' ) ( t y t x t r t v + = = For motion along a space curve, the definitions are extended in the normal way. Examples: #6 (What do you notice about the velocity and acceleration vectors at the point?) #12

### 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.
