What is the antelope's velocity at the first point?

What is the acceleration ?

**Damon**, Saturday, January 12, 2008 at 6:53pmsay x = 0 at start, t = 0

x = 80 at t = 7

v = 15 at x = 80 and t = 7

v = Vo + a t

x = 0 + Vo t + .5 a t^2

so

15 = Vo + 7 a

80 = Vo (7) +.5 a (49)

solve those two equations for Vo and a

**Damon**, Saturday, January 12, 2008 at 7:05pmok, you have 2 equations in your physics book for constant acceleration

velocity = initial velocity + acceleration times time

or

v = Vo + a t

position = initial position + initial velocity times time + half of acceleration times time squared

or

x = Xo + Vo t +(1/2) a t^2

here I called Xo, initial position zero and x after 7 seconds was 80

so

80 = 0 + Vo (7) + (1/2) a (7)^2

and I know final velocity at t = 7 is 15 but I do not know Vo

so

15 = Vo + a (7)
