Hello, Everyone. Tom from everystepphysics.com Here’s a test problem. I’m going to read it for you. A cart is given an initial velocity 5 meters per second and experience’s is a constant acceleration a two meters per second square. What is the magnitude of the carts displacement during the first six seconds of its motion? I always want you to in these problems to circle what’s ask for. In this case displacement and I want you to write on the side of the program what’s given. Which is in this case initial velocity acceleration in time. So let’s do it. Put physics in here with the open/close parentheses to get to my menu. We’re going to scroll down to displacement because that’s what it asks for. I’m going to choose what’s given which is velocity acceleration in time. There’s a formula for it. You have to press Alpha before we enter anything into the entry lines. So the initial velocity is Alpha five and meters per second. I do the conversions. Is acceleration given? Yes. Acceleration Alpha 2. And the time is Alpha 6. I always show you what you’ve entered. You can change it if you want. I say okay. Here’s the answer. Letter C, on the test. Pretty neat, huh? everystepphysics.com Go to my site, buy my programs and subscribe to me so you can see more movies. Thank you
