# Acceleration and Distance problem

The Tutor

## 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

V22=V12+2a$$\Delta$$d
$$\Delta$$d=V1$$\Delta$$t+1/2a($$\Delta$$t)2
$$\Delta$$d=V2$$\Delta$$t-1/2a($$\Delta$$t)2

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I found out acceleration using the third equation, which is .04 m/s2. 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.
