    Re: acceleration

    start by taking the derivative on the far right side w/r to s ...

    \frac{d}{ds}\left(\frac{v^2}{2}\right) = v \cdot \frac{dv}{ds} = \frac{ds}{dt} \cdot \frac{dv}{ds} = \frac{dv}{dt} = a

    Re: acceleration

    Note that

    a=a\cdot\frac{ ds}{ds}= {dv \over dt}\cdot\frac{ ds}{ds}={ds \over dt}\cdot\frac{ dv}{ds}=v\left(\frac{dv}{ds} \right)
