I'm trying to teach myself physics out of a textbook I recently bought. Unfortunately, it's doing a poor job of explaining the first couple of equations in the book. Can you explain them and their uses to me? Even though I know their basic meanings, please don't skip over any of the basic concepts as I'm already confused enough. Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. X = VT

2. a = delta V / delta T

3. X(t) = Xi + ViT + 1/2at^2

4. Vf2 = vi2 + 2ax

By the way, are there any commands for the different symbols? (Delta, exponents, etc.)
