Homework Help: Acceleration in terms of displacement and time

  1. Jun 3, 2007 #1
    I have the following values

    Sx = 0.1m
    t = 1.5 x 10^-2 s

    I want to find acceleration. I know that

    t = sqrt(2 * (Sx / Ax))

    Would I be right in saying that

    Ax = (2 x Sx)/t^2

    That's certainly correct. (assuming you meant that one x as multiplication)
