Initial velocity symbol is?
s/e/x or vo or vi depending on the text and teacher
What is the formula for calculating final velocity when you know the initial speed and the acceleration?
the formula for finding acceleration is final velocity, minus initial velocity, all over time. So if you have the acceleration and initial speed, which is equal to the initial velocity, you must also have time in order to find the final velocity. Once you have the time, you multiply it by the acceleration. That product gives you the difference of the final velocity and initial velocity, so then you just add the initial velocity to…
If you know the initial and final velocity you can determine the acceleration (Velocity final- Velocity initial)/time = acceleration This can also be seen by integrating the acceleration. In this case lets assume acceleration is constant, then: acceleration=C Integration from time=initial to time=final gives C*(time final-time initial)=velocity final-velocity initial This integration scheme can also work if acceleration is not constant. In this case you must know how acceleration or velocity changes with time.
What would be true of the values for initial velocity and final velocity if the acceleration were zero?
The initial velocity is zero. In most basic physics problems like this one the initial velocity will be zero as a rule of thumb: the initial velocity is always zero, unless otherwise stated, or this is what you are solving for Cases where the initial velocity is not zero examples a cannon ball is shot out of a cannon at 50 mph a ball is thrown from at a speed of 15 mph etc
Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity per time, so to get velocity, multiply (acceleration)*(time). This will give the change in velocity over the specific amount of time. You must add the initial velocity to get the final velocity, so we have the formula: Vf = Vo + a*t, where Vo is the initial velocity. This means that you can rearrange to get Vo = Vf - a*t
With no acceleration the final velocity is the same as the initial velocity. If the initial velocity is zero, the object is not moving. Unless there is some kind of force influencing the object. Then you have to calculate the acceleration: a=F/m where "F" is the force influencing the object (in Newtons) and "m" is its mass (in kilograms).
