An object in motion with velocity (v) must be accelerated inwards in order to travel in a circle or radius (r). This inward acceleration is called centripetal acceleration; see how to calculate it with this Formula Solver. Continue reading

Speed is a scalar quantity measuring distance travelled over time, while velocity is a vector quantity measuring displacement over time. This Tab-Tutor Series program will help you learn how to calculate them both — check out the glossary review, too! Continue reading

The relationship between constant acceleration, time, velocity, and distance is a key physics concept. Learn how to calculate constant acceleration with this Formula Solver. Continue reading

Acceleration is the increase of velocity over time, while deceleration is the decrease of velocity over time. This Tab-Tutor Series program will help you learn how to calculate them both — check out the glossary review and homework checker, too! Continue reading

Dear Professor Cram: An executive flew his corporate jet to a meeting in a city 1500 kilometers away. After traveling the same amount of time on return flight, the pilot mentioned that they still had 300 km to go. The Continue reading
