Derive the first equation of motion v = u + at, using the velocity-time graph for a body moving along a straight line with uniform acceleration.
Consider a velocity-time graph for a uniformly accelerated body starting from rest is represented as follows.
u: velocity at time t1
v: velocity at time t2
If acceleration is represented as a ,then, acceleration is defined as the rate of change in velocity.
This is first equation of linear motion.
