Constant Acceleration

V = U + at

s = vt - 1/2at2

s =  ut + at2     

v2   = u2  + 2as 

1 of 5

Variable Acceleration

s = displacement

ds/dt = v

 v = speed

dv/dt = a

a = acceleration

(integrate)a = v

v =  speed

(integrate)v = s

s =  displacement 

2 of 5

Newton's Second Law

F = ma

where

F is force ( this can be the resultant of two forces in opposite directions)

m is mass

a is acceleration

3 of 5

Conservation of Momentum

M1U1 + M2U2  =  M1V1 + M2V2

Where 

m is mass

u is speed of particle before collision

v is speed of particle after collision.

4 of 5

Limiting Equilibrium

F = µR

where

F is limiting friction (always opposing motion)

µ is the coefficient of friction between the object and the plane

R is the normal, or reaction force

Your formulas are incorrect in parts

Caroline

s=ut+½at²

s=½(v-u)t
