# What are the main equations I need to know when studying forces and acceleration?

The essential equations, at least at GCSE level, I call them the “suvat” equations. They each contain some of the values below: s = distance travelled u = initial velocIty v = final velocity a = acceleration t = time spent There are four equations: 1. s = ut + (1/2)at^2 2. v = u + at 3. v^2 = u^2 + 2as 4. s = vt All of these equations assume constant acceleration.
