Equations of Motion Summary

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

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.
