the physics formula for finding distance is v/t or speed divided by time. An easy way to remember this is to use something called the magic triangle, it will help you figure out the formulas for time, speed and distance and essentially velocity. The triangle is


V=Speed T=Time

D= Distance and T= Time

V= Speed

D= V x T

V= D/T

T= D/V

Velocity's formula is Df(finale)-Di(initial)/ T or delta D/ Delta T

Delta= Change

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What are some physics formulas for finding distance if you have mass and gravitational force?

If an object is dropped near the surface of a planet, then the distance it fallsduring the first ' S ' seconds after it's dropped is(1/2) (acceleration of gravity on that planet) (S2) .The object's mass doesn't matter, because it makes no difference.

What is formulas finding speed and velocity?

velocity = distance / time There are also some formulae involving acceleration; for example, in the case of constant acceleration: velocity = initial velocity + acceleration x time If the acceleration is not constant, an integral is used instead.
