Linear Motion : Uniform Acceleration
IntroductionTo understand this section you must remember the letters representing the variables:
u
- initial speed
v
- final speed
a
- acceleration(+) or deceleration(-)
t
- time taken for the change
s
- displacement(distance moved)It is also important to know the
S.I. units
(
Le Système International d'Unités
) forthese quantities:
u
- metres per second (ms
-1
)
v
- metres per second (ms
-1
)
a
- metres per second per second (ms
-2
)
t
- seconds (s)
s
- metres (m)in some text books 'speed' is replaced with 'velocity'. Velocity is more appropriate whendirection is important.Displacement-time graphsFor a displacement-time graph, the gradient at a point is equal to the
speed

Speed-time graphsFor a speed-time graph, the area under the curve is the distance travelled.The gradient at any point on the curve equals the acceleration.Note, the acceleration is also the second derivative of a speed-time function.Equations of MotionOne of the equations of motion stems from the definition of acceleration:acceleration = the rate of change of speed
