Practice choosing and applying the correct suvat formula.

## Summary/Background

In the exam, start by writing down these important formulae:

v=u+at

s=ut+\frac{1}{2}at^2

s=vt-\frac{1}{2}at^2

v^2=u^2+2as

s=\frac{1}{2}(u+v)t

## Glossary

### suvat

an acronym used in Mechanics for the constant acceleration formulae, where s is displacement, u is initial velocity, v is final velocity, a is acceleration and t is time.

### union

The union of two sets A and B is the set containing all the elements of A and B.
