One dimensional motion

In one dimension means that the body moves in a flat and straight. As if rolling a ball on a flat table, and if we are in a straight line (not easy), then it would be one-dimensional motion.

There are four variables that have been collected in an equation to describe this motion. These are the initial velocity (u), the final velocity (v), acceleration (a), distance (s) and time (t). The equations tell us that the relationship between these variables are given below.

v = u + at

V2 = u2 + 2as

s = ut + 1 / 2 at2

average speed = (u + v) / 2
