## Homework Statement

A turtle is moving with constant acceleration along a straight ditch. He starts his stopwatch as he passes a fence post and notes that it takes him 10s to reach a pine tree 10m further along the ditch. As he passes the pine tree, his speed is 1.2m/s. How far was he from the fence post when he started from rest?

## Homework Equations

V

^{2}=V

_{1}

^{2}+2a[tex]\Delta[/tex]d

[tex]\Delta[/tex]d=V

_{1}[tex]\Delta[/tex]t+1/2a([tex]\Delta[/tex]t)

^{2}

[tex]\Delta[/tex]d=V

_{2}[tex]\Delta[/tex]t-1/2a([tex]\Delta[/tex]t)

^{2}

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I found out acceleration using the third equation, which is .04 m/s

^{2}. So now I believe I have to figure out the velocity at the fence post, which comes to 0.8 m/s. I don't know what to do after that.
