# Make a The Subject Of The Formula V=u+at [Solved]

Last Updated: January 5, 2021 by

Here is a question where we are asked to make a the subject of the formula V=u+at.

“This question is derived from the first equation of motion V=u+at”.

If you are not familiar with the topic subject of the formula, this question will serve as an example for you.

This question might also be given this way.

Rearrange v=u+at to make a the subject

We won’t cover everything that deals with the main topic but this question will be treated perfectly.

## Make a The Subject Of The Formula V=u+at

Let me given you this hint. Whenever you are dealing with fractions, the first thing you do is to find the the LCM.

If the question given has either plus (+) or minus (-) add the values or substract them if they are like terms. In case there is an equal sign, collect like terms and Chang the sign I front of the number or variable.

Take for instance we are to make u the subject of the formula in this question

v=u+at

All you need to do is move the “at” to the other side. While moving this make sure you change the sign i.e from plus(+) to minus (-). So we now have v-at=u

If two alphabets or one alphabet and number are together are sticked together always apply division. E.g 2s=10 make s the subject of the formula. What you have to do here is to divide both side with the co-efficient of s which I 2.

2s/2 = 10/2

S=5.

The full guide on the subject of the formula will be dropped soon

Back to our Make a the subject of the formula v=u+at

• Step 1: move u to the other side. v-u=at
• Step 2: Divide both side by the co-efficient of a. v-u/t =at/t
• Finally we arrive at a=v-u/t

You can also try to solve these questions on the change of subject of the formula below.

1. Make h the subject of the formula

u=h+vt

2. Make n the subject of the formula

at=n+z
