Starting from the constant-acceleration kinematic equations, write a formula that gives t in terms of xi, xf, vi, and vf.
do i solve for acceleration in a equation and then plug it in?




Starting from the constant-acceleration kinematic equations, write a formula that gives vf in terms of t, xi, xf, and a.

Do i solve one of the kinematic equations for Vi then plug that into another equation? i just dont know what equations and if thats right.

First of all write down all the kinematic equations.

V = Vo + at

X - Xo = Vot + .5at2

v2 = vo2 + 2a(X - Xo)

X - Xo = .5(Vo + V)t

The last equation can give you the time t in terms of xi. xf, vi and vf.
Similarly in the second equation putting vi = vf - at, and rearranging you can get vf in terms of xi, xf, a and t.
