Need help with acceleration/time physics...
Skorche Wrote:Not to drag this on, but I'd like to point out that s = (u + v)*t/2 is using calculus. It's finding the area under the trapzoid in the velocity graph to determine the displacement.Yes, but in this case u=0 so the formula is really finding the area under a triangle.
Even when u != 0, the formula can be derived using the quadratic formula. Would you consider that calculus?
