- Motion in two dimension with constant acceleration we we know is the motion in which velocity changes at a constant rate i.e, acceleration remains constant throughout the motion

- We should set up the kinematic equation of motion for particle moving with constant acceleration in two dimensions.

- Equation's for position and velocity vector can be found generalizing the equation for position and velocity derived earliar while studying motion in one dimension

Thus velocity is given by equation

**v**=**v**+_{0}**a**t (8)

where

**v**is velocity vector

**v**is Intial velocity vector_{0}

**a**is Instantanous acceleration vector Similary position is given by the equation

**r**-**r**=_{0}**v**t+(1/2)_{0}**a**t^{2}(9)

where**r**is Intial position vector_{0}

i,e

**r**=x_{0}_{0}**i**+y_{0}**j**

and average velocity is given by the equation

**v**=(1/2)(_{av}**v**+**v**) (10)_{0}

- Since we have assumed particle to be moving in x-y plane,the x and y components of equation (8) and (9) are

v_{x}=v_{x0}+a_{x}t (11a)

x-x_{0}=v_{0x}t+(1/2)a_{x}t^{2}(11b)

and

v_{y}=v_{y0}+a_{y}t (12a)

y-y_{0}=v_{0y}t+(1/2)a_{y}t^{2}(12b)

- from above equation 11 and 12 ,we can see that for particle moving in (x-y) plane although plane of motion can be treated as two seperate and simultanous 1-D motion with constant acceleration

- Similar result also hold true for motion in a three dimension plane (x-y-z)
