Equations of Motion Summary
So, after all that algebra action, we are left with:
|v = u + at||From acceleration definition|
|s = ½ (v+u) × t||Average velocity is ½ (v+u)|
|s = ut + ½ at²||No 'v' needed|
|v² = u² + 2as||No 't' needed|
We often call these the uvast equations, with:
initial velocity u, final velocity v, acceleration a, displacement s, time t.
