## One Dimensional Motion Formulas

v = u + at v2 = u2 + 2as s = ut + 1/2 at2 average velocity = (v + u)/2 v: velocity (this is the velocity u combined with increases or decreases due to acceleration) u: velocity (in this case …

## Relative Motion & Reference Points

When something is observed it is always observed from some vantage point. If two people are running next to each other it will not seem as if the other is moving, since their relative motion is the …

## Car velocity physics – physics velocity

A physics professor drives along in his camry on the highway and covers about 88 feet per second or a velocity of 100 km/h when he observes a mitsubishi GT 3000 that races out onto the freeway. This …
