Relation between initial velocity, final velocity and acceleration

Let us derive the relation between the initial velocity, final velocity and acceleration. Suppose a body has an initial velocity u and is moving with uniform acceleration a. Let the final velocity of the body after time t = v. … Continue reading

Acceleration, average Acceleration, uniform Acceleration, variable Acceleration, instantaneous Acceleration

Acceleration: The state of change of velocity of a body with time is known as its acceleration. If the velocity of a body increases with time, then its acceleration is positive. On the other hand, if the velocity of a … Continue reading
