1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The derivitive of the X_{final}=.5at^{2}+V_{initial}t+X_{initial} 2. Relevant equations X_{final}=.5at^{2}+V_{initial}t+X_{initial} X_{final}= Final distance X_{initial}= Initial distance a= Acceleration t= Time V_{initial}= Initial velocity 3. The attempt at a solution I have attempted the problem but get stuck almost immediatly. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations 3.

Here x(initial), v(initial) and acceleration are constant. So the derivative of the equation with respect to time is
d(xf)/dt = d(.5at^2)/dt + d(vi*t)/dt
