What acceleration does a rocket need to reach speed of 200 m/s at height of 1.0km. I know that acceleration is velocity over time but I have only velocity and distance.
So how about the formula: [tex]v_f ^ 2 = v_i ^ 2 + 2ad[/tex]? Do you know this formula? Can you go from there? Remember to change 1.0 km into 1000m. Viet Dao,
a : acceleration (m / s ^ 2) = ?. d : displacement (m) = 1000 m. v_i : initial velocity (m / s) = 0 m / s (The object accelerates from rest). v_f : final velocity (m / s) = 200 m / s. Can you go from here? By the way, I think it is physics, not calculus... Viet Dao,
O thanks. I tried to look it up in some later chapters but found formulas involving derivations. I didn't know what those variables were so I guessed that you have to use calculus to find way to do it. Thanks for help.
