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

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

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