Kinematics. The Equations for Uniform Acceleration

This calculator will help you to solve uniform acceleration problems

This page exists due to the efforts of the following people:

This calculator will help you to solve all types of uniform acceleration problems.

As you may know, there are two main equations for uniform acceleration
V_t=V_o+atS=V_{avg}t=\frac{V_o+V}{2}t=V_ot+\frac{at^2}{2}
Thus, we have five parameters of motion: initial velocity Vo, final velocity V, acceleration a, time t and displacement S, and two equations. Obvious conclusion - to use these equations we need three known parameters, and two unknown parameters.
As Combinatorics. Combinations, arrangements and permutations tells us, number of combination of 3 from 5 is 10, so, there are ten types of problems at all, each has different set of known parameters.

This calculator allows you to enter any three known parameters and use "-" symbol to denote unknown, and it kindly finds unknown ones. BTW, by default acceleration has value of gravity g, making a free fall problem
