 Displacement = Final Point  Initial Point
 Not Constant Velocity  Average Velocity (V) = (displacement / time)
 Average Velocity (V) = (∆x / ∆t)
 Instantaneous Velocity = derivative of the given equation Instantaneous Velocity = ( (afinal)  (ainitial) ) / ( (tfinal)(tinitial) )  ∆t = (tfinal)  (tinitial)  ∆x = (xfinal)  (xinitial)  Acceleration  ∆V = (Vfinal)  (Vinitial) ∆t = (tfinal)  (tinitial)  Acceleration (a) = (∆V) / (∆t) [a is constant]  if a > 0 (positive) if a < 0 (negative)  Instantaneous Acceleration = derivative of the given equation  Constant Acceleration = constant acceleration motion in 1D  Vfinal = (a ⋅ t) + Vinitial Vfinal ^{2} = (vinitial)^{2} + 2 ⋅ a ( (tfinal)  (tinitial) )
 ∆x = (xfinal)  (xinitial) ∆x = (vaverage) ⋅ (seconds) ∆x = (1/2 ⋅ (Vfinal) + (Vinitial) ) ⋅ t (seconds)  xfinal = 1/2 ( (Vinitial) + (Vfinal) ) ⋅ t + (xinitial) xfinal = xinitial + (Vinitial) ⋅ t(seconds) + 1/2 ⋅ a ⋅ t^{2}
