A Question a Day (series) Q3 Reply

The equation v = a*del_t is sometimes used
to find velocity when acceleration and
time are known. Another form of this
equation is v = v_0 + a*del_t. In this second
form of the equation, the function of the
term v_0 is to:

A. indicate that the equation is valid
only for an object that starts at rest.

B. determine the time at which
velocity is equal to zero.
