Equations of Motion Summary

So, after all that algebra action, we are left with:

v = u + atFrom acceleration definition
s = ½ (v+u) × tAverage velocity is ½ (v+u)
s = ut + ½ at²No 'v' needed
v² = u² + 2asNo 't' needed

We often call these the uvast equations, with:
initial velocity u, final velocity v, acceleration a, displacement s, time t.
