I am passionate about travelling and currently live and work in Paris. I like to spend my time reading, gardening, running, learning languages and exploring new places.

This is one of the accepted dynamics equations, useful in situations where acceleration is constant, e.g. when bodies are affected by gravity. If a body’s initial velocity is u, and its final velocity is v, and the acceleration is a, then s will be the distance covered. Note that a strict “vector” rule applies: direction is important.
