Problem 18DQ

If you know the initial position and initial velocity of a vehicle and have a record of the acceleration at each instant, can you compute the vehicle’s position after a certain time? If so, explain how this might be done.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 18DQ Step 1: Using the position/time equation: 2 position = (starting point) + (starting speed)(time) + 1/2(acceleration)(t) Or x = x + v t + 1/2at 2 0 0 v = at
