Linear motion (also called rectilinear motion) is a one-dimensional motion along a straight line, and can therefore be mathematically described using a single spatial dimension only.This is the first equation of motion . It's written like a polynomial — a constant term (v0) followed by a first order term (at). Since the highest order is 1, it's more correct to call it a linear function. The symbol v0 [vee nought] is called the initial velocity or the velocity a time t = 0.
