Hi All!

I was hoping you guys might be able to point me in the right direction...

I'm after a online calculator or excel spreadsheet that will allow me to analyse how long a body will take to cover a given distance with a given acceleration rate. There are plenty of "simpler" ones out there but I need one that accounts for the initial velocity being 0 and hence the time taken to get to the max speed.

Thanks in advance for any help!

You know the acceleration? Is is constant? If yes then:

[tex] x = \frac 1 2 a t^2 + V_0 t + x_0 [/tex]

Is the general realtionship.
