Uniform variable linear movement

What does this mean?

The uniform variable linear movement means that uninterrupted objects will continue to move in a straight line and with an acceleration or speed reduction for a certain time.

The uniform variable linear movement is used to calculate the acceleration or speed reduction of a moving object.

Uniform variable linear movement is measured in two parts. Acceleration or speed reduction and time. Together these make up the velocity.

distance: s= s0 + v0 * t + (a*t²)/2
speed: v = v0 + a * t
s = distance v = speed
s0 = beginning distance v0= beginning speed
v0= beginning speed a = acceleration
t = time t = time
a = acceleration
