it is denoted by

v

- u
^{

= 2as

Where

v = Final Velocity

u = Initial Velocity

s = Distance Travelled

a = acceleration

To solve problems using equations of motion, we should remember that

- If body starts from rest, its Initial velocity = u = 0
- If we drop a body from some height, its Initial velocity = u = 0
- If body stops, its Final velocity = v = 0
- If body moves with uniform velocity, its Acceleration = a = 0
