# Derive three equation of motion

Answer:

(1) First equation of Motion: v = u + a t

Consider a body of mass �m� having initial velocity �u�.

Let after time �t� its final velocity becomes �v� due to uniform acceleration �a�.

Now we know that:
Acceleration = Change in velocity / Time taken

Acceleration = (Final velocity - Initial velocity) / Time taken

a = v - u / t
a t = v - u

or  v = u + a t

This is the first equation of motion.

(2) Second equation of motion: s = u t + 1/2 at2

Let the distance travelled by the body be �s�.

We know that
Distance = Average velocity x Time

Also, Average velocity = (u + v) / 2

.:  Distance (t) = (u + v) / 2 t            ��.eq.(1)

Again we know that:

v = u + at

Substituting this value of �v� in eq.(1), we get

s = (u + u + a t) / 2 t
s = (2 u + a t) / 2 t
s = (2 u t + a t2) / 2
s = (2 u t / 2) + (a t2 / 2)

or  s = u t + (1/2) a t2

This is the 2nd equation of motion.

(3) Third equation of Motion:  v2 = u2 +2 a s

We know that

v = u + a t
v - u = a t

or  t = (v - u) / a                                    ���..eq.(2)

Also we know that

Distance = average velocity x Time

.: s = [(v + u) / 2] x [(v - u) / a]

s = (v2 � u2) / 2 a

2 a s = v2 � u2

or  v2 = u2 + 2 a s

This is the third equation of motion.
