# Differentiation: s = ut + 1/2at^2

This equation represents displacement of a body(s) against time (t) where (u) is the initial velocity and (a) is the acceleration.

Differentiate to derive the equation for instantaneous velocity, which would be represented by the gradient of a graph.

s = ut + 1/2at^2
