You end up with time squared in the denominator just because it’s velocity divided by time — that’s something you get used to when solving physics problems. >> 1. In terms of equations, it works like this: Given initial and final velocities, vi and vf, and initial and final times over which your speed changed, ti and tf, you can also write the equation like this: To get the units of acceleration, you divide velocity by time as follows: Displacement over time squared?

Speed, Velocity, and Acceleration Problems Use your OWN PAPER, and show ALL work. A rocket releases a satellite into orbit around Earth. Assuming he does not speed up or slow down, what is his speed in meters per second? a. b. /YVHJLQ+Arial-ItalicMT_2 23 0 R /Type/Catalog Following are answers to the practice questions: Start by converting 17,000 miles per hour into miles per second: To land on the moon, vf must be 0 miles per second, and tf – to = 2.0 hours, or 2.0 x 3,600 seconds = 7,200 seconds, so: So the rocket needs a constant acceleration of 6.6 x 10–4 miles per second2 in a direction opposite to the rocket’s initial velocity to land on the Moon at a speed of 0 miles per second, touching down lightly.
