Problem: a. What equation gives the position at a specific time for an object with constant acceleration?b. The position versus time graph of a body undergoing constant acceleration is a _____c. What equation gives the velocity at a specific time for an object with constant acceleration?d. The equation of the velocity versus time of a body undergoing constant acceleration is a ____

FREE Expert Solution

Uniform accelerated motion (UAM) equations, a.k.a. "kinematics equations":

 vf = v0 +atx= (vf+v02)tx= v0t+12at2 vf2= v02 +2ax

a.

The fundamental kinematic equation for displacement is given by:

Δx = v0t + (1/2)at2

The position equation is x = v0t + (1/2)at2

Therefore, the equation x = v0t + (1/2)at2 cannot be position equation.
