I've been doing a problem that requires me to find the time taken to travel a certain distance if I know the initial acceleration of a body at the starting position and its initial velocity (starts from rest). The acceleration is a function of position a=-GM/(Ro^2).
So say a body is released from rest a distance Ro from a point mass, and it's initial acceleration is that stated above- how would I go about finding the time taken to travel this distance (from Ro to the origin.
Thanks.
