How to Calculate One Dimensional Motion - Definition, Formula and Example


Motion refers to a moving object from one location to another. One dimensional equation of motion identifies the constant acceleration, which means the velocity that raises or declines at the same rate throughout the motion. When an object moves with constant velocity without any modifications in its speed or direction then it is considered as 1D motion velocity.

v2 = u2 + 2as
v = Final Velocity u = Initial Velocity a = Acceleration s = Distance
Example :

Distance of a moving object is 5 m, acceleration is 6 m/s2 and the velocity at the beginning is 25 m/s. Calculate the final velocity of the moving object in one dimensional equation of motion.

Given :

Distance (s) = 5 m

Acceleration (a) = 6 m/s2

Initial Velocity (u) = 25 m/s

To Find :

Final Velocity (v)

Solution :

Substitute the given values in the formula,

v2 = u2 + 2as
= (25 X 25) + 2 x 6 x 5
= 625 + 60
v = √685
Final Velocity (v) = 26.1725
