## Main Question or Discussion Point

So I am trying to fully understand how to come about the kinematic equations for uniformly accelerated motion.

So v = dr/dt and a = dv/dt

How does the math work behind this I know the second is the derivative of the first.

dr = v*dt dv = a*dt

So dv is the derivative of dr, a is the derivative of v, then why do we not do anything with dt?

Rusty on my calculus anyone who could explain this to me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
