Linear Motion : Non-uniform Acceleration

Theory Consider a particle P moving in a straight line from a starting point O.

**x at time t . t ≥ 0 when x=0. if v is the velocity of P at time t, then
**

The displacement from O is The initial conditions are:

The acceleration 'a' of particle P is defined as:

or alternately,

Problems on this topic are solved by analysing the information given to form a differential equation. This is then integrated, usually between limits.

Example #1 A particle moves in a straight line such that its acceleration 'a' at time 't' is given by:

If the initial speed of the particle is 5 ms-1, at what values of 't' is the particle stationary?

Example #2 A particle moves from a point O in a straight line with initial velocity 4 ms-1. if v is the velocity at any instant, the acceleration a of the particle is given by:

The particle passes through a point X with velocity 8 ms-1. (i) how long does the particle take to reach point X? (ii) what is the distance OX?(1 d.p.)
