    Ah, yep I did. Thanks for everyones help.

    Time taken to travel x meters with constant acceleration

    OK, so I've had a go. Can someone please check my answer and see if it's correct? (Sorry for the crappy formatting, I'm not sure how to do sub\superscripts) initial velocity = 0; acceleration = 20m/s^2; displacement = 1379.8; d = vi * t + 0.5 * a * t^2 1379.8 = 0m/s * t + 0.5 * 20m/s^2 * t^2...

    Yep, the starting velocity was 0. I'll look into kinematics and see if I can make sense of those formulas.

    Time taken to travel x meters with constant acceleration

    Hi, I'm trying to solve something that I'm very sure is simple, I just can't seem to find the right equation. A rocket is travelling straight up, with an acceleration of 20m/s^2. I need to know how long it takes to reach a height of 1379.8m (this is the second part of a question). I am...
