        The Math of Energy | Equations of Motion

        The equations of motion provide relations between a moving object’s acceleration, velocity, and distance traveled.  In this video, we use examples of a running horse to demonstrate the relationship between acceleration, velocity, and distance.  In addition, we apply the relationships to an accelerating car to assess its fuel efficiency. The maximum fuel efficiency occurs near 55 mph, the justification for the National Maximum Speed Law of 1973, which was designed to save fuel during the 1973 oil crisis.
