    Can you explain, or prove why we have this equation as i'm interested in learning the equation as well as knowing from where that people derive it?

    What does 1/2 * (vi + vf) suggest to you?

    If I were to drive my car at 10mph and then over a given time period accelerate to 20mph then what would 1/2*(10+20) represent?
