1. Three units to remember?
MKS= meters/ kg/ sec

CGS= cm/g/ sec

ENG= feet/ slugs/ sec
2. X =
[L]
3. V=
[L/T]
4. T=
[T]
5. Convert V to X:
[L] = [L/T] [T]

x=vt
6. What does V0 mean?
has velocity of the holder initially

If the holder is moving, the initial velocity is that of the holder
7. Explain gravity.
a force downward. And since this is opposite of our coordinate system, it is usually negative
8. Equation used for determining how fast something is?
V= V0+at
9. Interested in speed? Use:
V^2=Vi2+2a(x-x0)
10. To find position, what equation is used?
x= x(initial)+ v(initial)t+ (1/2)at^2
11. To find velocity under a constant acceleration?
V= at+ v(initial)
12. For velocity in terms of position?
V^2=Vi2+2a(x-x0)
13. Position as a function of Time and Velocity
x= x0+(1/2)(v0+v)t
