How do I work this question out?
A car travelling at 10 m/s accelerates at 12 m/s over a distance of 24m. What is its final velocity?
Someone told me the formula is V squared - U squared = 2 x a x X, but I don't understand

Thank you. I love the drawing of the car. What is suvat?

You can tell I'm a mathematician not an artist... Suvat eqns are equations relating to linear acceleration. I put a YouTube link above deriving all of them
