Is is permissible to write an acceleration vector like they do in physics? So instead of the AP style <3t, t-4>, the vector could be written as (3t)i+(t-4)j?
Thanks

yes, you can... vectors can be written (at least, I know this forms) as:
$\displaystyle \overlinearrow{a}=(a,b)$
$\displaystyle \overlinearrow{a}=a\hat{i}+b\hat{j}$
$\displaystyle \overlinearrow{a}=\begin{pmatrix}
a\\
b
\end{pmatrix}$
sorry, I don't know why TeX isn't working in the last form :c
You can use \vec instead of \overlinearrow:
$\displaystyle \vec{a}$
and array instead of pmatrix:
$\displaystyle \left(\begin{array}{c}a\\ b\end{array}\right)$
The <br\> thing happens when you put pieces of the array on separate lines.

Actually, it seems that pmatrix works:
$\displaystyle \begin{pmatrix}a\\ b\end{pmatrix}$
In fact, I think I like that better than what I got before with array.
