If v represents the velocity of an object at time t then s = \displaystyle \int v \, dt will represent its position.  You can get a better display of the maths by downloading special TeX fonts from jsMath. In the meantime, we will do the best we can with the fonts you have, but it may not be pretty and some equations may not be rendered correctly.

## Glossary
