Derivation of Equation of Motion
The following techniques can be used to obtain the equations of motion:
- Equations of motion are derived using the simple algebraic method.
- Motion equations are derived using a graphical method
- Motion equations derived using the calculus method
As a result, it takes the ball 5 seconds to return to the earth's surface.
A ball is thrown vertically upwards with a velocity of 49 m/s. Calculate the total time it takes to return to the surface of the earth.
A ball is hurled 49 meters per second vertically up in the air. It takes 5s to reach the earth's surface in its entirety. The equation of motion formula can be derived using the calculus method, graphical method, and simple algebraic method.
