Distance travelled space s space measured in metres (m)

Time taken spaceaispacetspacet measured in seconds (s)

The velocity at the start (called initial velocity) u measured in m/s

The velocity at the end (called the final velocity) v measured in m/s

The acceleration of the object a measured in m/s

1. Motion with constant velocity

Distance (s) = velocity (u or v) x time (t) space s = vt

2. Accelerated motion

Acceleration (a) = [change in velocity]/time = [v-u]/t spaceor space a = [v-u]/t

Another version: space v = u + at

s = ut + ½ at

Accelerated motion with zero initial velocity

s = ½ at
