Here is the one that I made as a test. As you hold up, the car moves slowly at first then more quickly. When you let go the car slows down and eventually stops. A pretty simple set up, no complex math needed lol.

Delta X means the change in distance, so it is often worded as Delta x, not d (it was in my AP Physics textbook).

Same thing for the V's. V implicitly means final velocity, while Vo ("V aught"), means initial velocity.

In other words, my equation was just as correct as yours, just harder to read.
I'm too used to seeing displacement as a different character set which is why I messed that up (too close-minded of me ). Yours works better for explanation though. My sigma equation is essentially a result of too much calculus

Yeah, I remember that. I took AP Physics and Calculus, and I remember seeing some connections between the two (I was even able to cheat and use kinematics to solve a problem I was supposed to use Calculus to solve. Now THAT'S a good way to tick off your teacher.)

I probably would have done that too but my physics was in the second semester and differential/integral calculus was in the first .

I do defy my teacher in calculus by making my own programs to solve things for me ie: a program that automatically does the chain rule. What's funnier is I use a Casio and everyone else uses a TI-83/84, so neither he nor anyone else can try and link it to get the program (nor do they know how to delete it ).
