The image above represents distance covered. To calculate distance covered, three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **final velocity (v), initial velocity (u)Â **andÂ **time (t).**

The formula for calculating distance covered:

S = (^{(u + v)} / _{2}) t

Where;

S = Distance Covered

u = Initial Velocity

v = Final Velocity

t = Time

Let’s solve an example;

Find the distance covered when the initial velocity is 6, final velocity is 11 and time is 14.

This implies that;

u = Initial Velocity = 6

v = Final Velocity = 11

t = Time = 14

S = (^{(u + v)} / _{2}) t

S = (^{(6 + 11)} / _{2}) 14

That is, S = (^{(17)} / _{2}) 14

S = (8.5) 14

S = 119

Therefore, theÂ **distance coveredÂ **isÂ **119 m.**

**Calculating the Initial Velocity when the Distance Covered, the Final Velocity and the Time are Given**

u = (^{2S} / _{t}) – v

Where;

u = Initial Velocity

S = Distance Covered

v = Final Velocity

t = Time

Let’s solve an example;

Find the initial velocity when the distance covered is 48, the final velocity is 20 and the time is 4.

This implies that;

S = Distance Covered = 48

v = Final Velocity = 20

t = Time = 4

u = (^{2S} / _{t}) – v

u = (^{2(48)} / _{4}) – 20

Then, u = (^{96} / _{4}) – 20

u = 24Â – 20

u = 4

Therefore, theÂ **initial velocityÂ **isÂ **4 m/s.**

**Calculating the Final Velocity when the Distance Covered, Initial Velocity and the Time are Given**

v = (^{2S} / _{t}) – u

Where;

v = Final Velocity

S = Distance Covered

u = Initial Velocity

t = Time

Let’s solve an example;

Find the final velocity when the distance covered is 60, the initial velocity is 12 and the time is 8.

This implies that;

S = Distance Covered = 60

u = Initial Velocity = 12

t = Time = 8

v = (^{2S} / _{t}) – u

v = (^{2(60)} / _{8}) – 12

So, v = (^{120} / _{8}) – 12

v = 15 – 12

v = 3

Therefore, theÂ **final velocityÂ **isÂ **3 m/s.**

**Calculating the Time when the Distance Covered, Final Velocity and the Initial Velocity are Given**

t = ^{2S} / _{u + v}

Where;

t = Time

S = Distance Covered

u = Initial Velocity

v = Final Velocity

Let’s solve an example;

Given that the distance covered is 44, the final velocity is 20, the initial velocity is 10. Find the time?

This implies that;

S = Distance Covered = 44

u = Initial Velocity = 10

v = Final Velocity = 20

t = ^{2S} / _{u + v}

t = ^{2(44)} / _{10 + 20}

Then, t = ^{88} / _{30}

t = 2.93

Therefore, theÂ **timeÂ **isÂ **2.93 s.**
