Behind the Equations

In secondary school, students in physics learn about the kinematics equations. These equations describe the motion of objects under a constant acceleration (often gravity). There are several equations, which describe the relationships between acceleration, speed, position, and time. In particular, here is one of the equations: x(t) = x0 + v0t + at2/2. This equation lets us find the position at any time t, since the other parameters are known. You might even recognize this…
