    Finding velocity as a function of position, constant acceleration

    Thanks so much for your help on this. Graphs are coming out perfectly.

    Finding velocity as a function of position, constant acceleration

    Oh my gosh, how did that work! Expressed in fps, it works fine. y-intercept 88 fps, x intercept 150' So to change the y axis to mph, I just multiply the right side of the equation by 60mph/88fps, right? Sheesh, didn't see that one coming.

    Finding velocity as a function of position, constant acceleration

    Speed as a function of position. I'd like to know how fast the truck is going at a given displacement.

    Finding velocity as a function of position, constant acceleration

    Hi--thanks for the response. Well, I worked my way to the final equation you posted (it matches up to the final equation in my original post--may not have been clear, I didn't realize I could write in LaTeX). The problem is that I calculate a stopping distance of 150' by using average speed *...

    Finding velocity as a function of position, constant acceleration

    Thanks for your response. However, I understand that part already--what I'm trying to work out is the equation for velocity as a function of position.

    Finding velocity as a function of position, constant acceleration

    This isn't actually a homework question, it's for a vehicle safety project at work, but I think it fits in this forum. Homework Statement A truck is traveling down the road at 60 mph, and begins to decelerate at a rate of 0.8 g. I'd like to find the total distance it takes the truck to...
