# SUVAT Calculator

Choose the unknown term and enter the required values in this SUVAT calculator.

Formula t = v - ua

## SUVAT Calculator

This SUVAT calculator solves for the values of quantities involved in the constantly accelerated motion. Using this uniformly accelerated motion calculator you can find the values of:

• Distance (S)
• Time (t)
• Initial velocity (u)
• Final velocity (v)
• Acceleration (a)

Let’s see what do we mean by SUVAT and what are the formulas used to calculate these values.

## What is SUVAT?

SUVAT is the acronym of five motion quantities: Distance, initial velocity, final velocity, acceleration, and time respectively. These formulae are only applicable if the acceleration is uniform throughout the motion.

## SUVAT formulas:

The five formulas used to calculate these values are:

s = ut + ½ * at2

### Initial velocity:

u = (s - ½ * at2) / t

### Final velocity:

v = (s + ½ * at2) / t

a = v2 - u2 / 2s

t = v - u / a

## How to calculate SUVAT quantities?

The most difficult equation by glance is of distance. So let’s see an example of calculating this quantity.

Example:

If a man has been running with an acceleration of 2ms-2 for two 5 seconds. The initial velocity is 0ms-1 and the final velocity is 10ms-1. Find the distance.

Solution:

s = (0)(5) + ½ * (2)(5)2

s = ½ * 50

s = 25 m
