Hi, I am just wondering how you would approach this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Using the definitions below, derive an equation for velocity as a function of acceleration and time (v=f(a,t)). Assume initial velocity is Vo. The answer to this problem is v=v0+a(t2-t1). My question is how would you arrive to this answer step-by-step. Below are the definitions:

x=current position in the x dimension

deltax= change in position

t=time now, t0 is the starting time.

deltat= a time interval, t2-t1.

v=deltax/deltat (use as a scaler for now).

deltav= a change in velocity.

a=deltav/deltat (Use as a scaler for now).

Subscripts: 0 is an initial value, other numbers are subsequent values in time order as needed.

v (average)= (v1+v2)/2, a simple average.

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
