There are 3 basic formulae dealing with speed(S), time(T) and distance(D):

(note that ^ will mean "to the power of")

s = ut + (at^2)/2

v^2 = u^2 + 2as

v = u + at

The first of the three equations will give you "distance"

A useful fact is that the first 4 letters of the word DISTance can be thought of as D Distance; I Is; S Speed; T Time

Distance Is Speed x Time
