I noticed that sometimes exist a parallel between scalar and vector calculus, for example:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

##v=at+v_0##

##s=\int v dt = \frac{1}{2}at^2 + v_0 t + s_0##

in terms of vector calculus

##\vec{v}=\vec{a}t+\vec{v}_0##

##\vec{s}=\int \vec{v} dt = \frac{1}{2}\vec{a}t^2 + \vec{v}_0 t + \vec{s}_0##

So, this same equation could be written in terms of tensor calculus? Or exist some equation that can assume a scalar, vector and tensor form?
