For positive velocity: p=vt(Position=velocity*time) The velocity will be positive.For negative velocity: p=p(0)+vt(Note: The "0" represents the position at time "0" which is also known as the y-intercept, which is the point where the line crosses the vertical axis. A different label, such as x could be used to represent the position.) The velocity will be negative in this formula.Example: Write the position equation for a person who starts 3 meters behind the reference point and walks with a constant velocity v=6 m/s in the positive direction.Answer: p=-3+6t
