In science, we calculate the displacement of an object (how far it travels) and the velocity of an object (how fast it is moving) using the Displacement Equation and the Velocity Equation:
Where is the displacement of the object, measured in meters t is the amount of time that we analyze the movement of the object, measured in seconds v0 is the initial velocity of the object, i.e. the velocity of the object at the beginning of our analysis, measured in meters per second (m/s). v is the final velocity of the object, i.e. the velocity of the object at the end of the time period t. The final velocity is measured in meter per second (m/s).
