## anonymous one year ago Solve the equation for a. v_(2)=v_(1)+at

1. jim_thompson5910

what do you have so far?

2. anonymous

Nothing. I am confused how to slove this.

3. jim_thompson5910

|dw:1441251049635:dw|

4. jim_thompson5910

the first thing we do is subtract $$\Large v_1$$ from both sides |dw:1441251086494:dw|

5. jim_thompson5910

|dw:1441251100053:dw|

6. jim_thompson5910

so we have this now |dw:1441251123661:dw|

7. jim_thompson5910

the at means a times t how do we move the t over?

8. anonymous

Multiply it both sides?

9. jim_thompson5910

close

10. jim_thompson5910

we divide both sides by t |dw:1441251240708:dw|

11. jim_thompson5910

|dw:1441251254024:dw|

12. jim_thompson5910

and we're left with $\Large a = \frac{v_2-v_1}{t}$
