The formula for acceleration is given as a = (v2 - v1) / (t2 - t1), where "a" denotes the acceleration, "v2" indicates the final velocity, "v1" represents the initial velocity and "t2 - t1" is the time interval between t... More »

While there are several formulas for angular acceleration, the basic equation is the change in angular velocity divided by the change in time. This relationship is shown in the following equation: (Av2 - Av1)/(T2 - T1). More »

Acceleration shows the changes in the magnitude and direction of velocity. It is a vector with a standard unit of meters per second squared. More »

Resultant velocity is the vector sum of all given individual velocities. Velocity is a vector because it has both speed and direction. There are many ways to calculate vector sums, such as using a vector addition diagram... More »

The equation to calculate a free-falling object's velocity or time spent falling is velocity equals gravitational acceleration multiplied by time. This occurs if three conditions are given: an initial velocity of zero, a... More »

The maximum height of a projectile is calculated with the equation h = vy^2/2g, where g is the gravitational acceleration on Earth, 9.81 meters per second, h is the maximum height and vy is the vertical component of the ... More »

When the acceleration of an object is zero and the velocity is positive, the object continues to move at a steady velocity in the same direction. The object cannot be changing direction because direction change results i... More »
