Linear Motion

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Linear motion is a one direction motion on a one dimensional plane using acceleration, displacement, and velocity.

Linear Motion Formula

(Eq. 1)  \(\large{ s =  v_i + at  }\)

(Eq. 2)  \(\large{ s = \frac{1}{2} \left( v_i + v_f \right) t  }\)

(Eq. 3)  \(\large{ s = v_i t + \frac{1}{2} at^2  }\)

(Eq. 4)  \(\large{ s = v_f t - \frac{1}{2} at^2  }\)

Where:

\(\large{ s }\) = displacement (linear motion)

\(\large{ a }\) = acceleration

\(\large{ v_f }\) = final velocity

\(\large{ v_i }\) = initial velocity

\(\large{ t }\) = time
