so if A is the acceleration
and T is time and D is distance then D = A * T^2 right????

In the mean time, just click on Mechanics, and then on Velocity & Acceleration. Does that work okay?

So 9 seconds and 32 f/s (1g) would cover about one quarter mile, 1320 feet. 32*81=2592, divide by 2=1296 feet. A true quarter mile would be about 9.08 seconds. 73 Berkeman, AI3N here. 2 meters, 70 cm, 20/30/40/80 voice mainly.
