Kinematic equations must be written in vector form Unit vector form is most advantageous Takes advantage of properties of Cartesian coordinates; i.e., independence of coordinates from one another r t ( 29 = x t ( 29 ˆ i + y t ( 29 ˆ j v t ( 29 = d r t ( 29 dt = dx t ( 29 dt ˆ i + dy t ( 29 dt ˆ j = v x t ( 29 ˆ i + v y t ( 29 ˆ j a t ( 29 = d v t ( 29 dt = dv x t ( 29 dt ˆ i + dv y t ( 29 dt ˆ j = a x t ( 29 ˆ i + a y t ( 29 ˆ j
