(c) when the acceleration changes from moment to moment

Work Step by Step

When deriving the equations of kinematics, we assume the acceleration to be constant. But, when the acceleration is varying with time, our assumption is violated, and we cannot use those equations. In such cases, we need to use differentiation and integration techniques.
