vf = vo + at
x = vot + 1/2at2
vf2 = vo2 +2ax
The units for speed are m/s.
Just like speed, except it's a vector.
The units of acceleration are m/s2.
Step 1: Write out all five variables in a table. Fill in the known values, and put a "?" next to the unknown values.
Step 2: Count how many known values you have. If you have three or more, move on to Step 3. Find another way to slove the problem (or to get another known variable).
Step 3: Choose the fundamental kinematics equations (slide 2) that contains all three of your known variables. Plug in the known values and solve.
