    I couldn't follow what's in the red box. I just hope anyone on here could look through it and tell me if there is some error in there. If not, then I feel stupid.

    There is no mistake in that picture

    [tex] a = \frac{\Delta v}{\Delta t}[/tex]

    Why is it squaring delta t all of a sudden? :confused:

    You can see from the very first line in that rectangular box that we have [itex] \Delta t (\Delta t) [/itex].
