Homework Help: Simple Kinematics Question 2

  1. Sep 23, 2006 #1
    A body starts moving with velocity Vo and constant acceleration a. After moving a certain distance, it attains a velocity of V. What is its velocity as it moves half the distance?

    Vo = 1m/s
    V = 7m/s

    Start this way:

    find the formula that relates initial velocity, final velocity, displacement, and acceleration. (Time is NOT a concern in this problem because a) it will not be constant and b) it is neither given nor asked for in the problem.)
