# A Simple Physics Problem -- Distance and object travels when pushed with a constant force

mentor note: moved from classical physics hence no HH template.

I am sure this will not take someone long to figure out. It has been awhile and while I do remember some of my basic physics I can't remember how to tie it all together. So her it is: How far would a 1 kg object travel with 6 newtons of force applied for 4 seconds (assume friction is 0)?

What is the acceleration of the object?

Your question can be answered if you have understand Newton's 1st and 2nd law of classical mechanics.
What does Newton's 2nd law tell us for the acceleration of the object during the 4seconds that the force is applied on it?
What does the same law tell us for the acceleration after the duration of 4 seconds, when there is no force applied to the object. What does Newton's 1st law tell us for the motion of the object after the duration of 4 seconds?
