## Homework Statement

A boy sledding down a hill accelerates at 1.45 m/s2. If he started from rest, in what distance would he reach a speed of 7.60 m/s?

## Homework Equations

(vf)^2 = (vo)^2 + 2ax

where vf = final velocity = 7.6 m/s

vo = initial velocity = 0 m/s

a = 1.45 m/s2

x = distance = unknown

## The Attempt at a Solution

a = 1.45 m/s

Vf = 7.60 m/s

Vo = 0 m/s

(7.60)^2 = (0)^2+2(1.45)(x)

15.2 = 0 + 2.9x

15.2 = 2.9x

5.143 = x
