1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The derivitive of the Xfinal=.5at2+Vinitialt+Xinitial

2. Relevant equations

Xfinal= Final distance
Xinitial= Initial distance
a= Acceleration
t= Time
Vinitial= Initial velocity

3. The attempt at a solution
I have attempted the problem but get stuck almost immediatly.

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
