How do I solve for acceleration using the equation v^2 = v0^2 + 2axΔx?

  • #1
I am trying to solve a problem, which requires me to first find the acceleration using the equation v^2 = v0^2 + 2axΔx. Do I divide both sides by 2ax first?


Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Since you are solving for 'ax', you must try to isolate 'ax'. Start by isolating the 2axΔx term.
