Hi All! I was hoping you guys might be able to point me in the right direction... I'm after a online calculator or excel spreadsheet that will allow me to analyse how long a body will take to cover a given distance with a given acceleration rate. There are plenty of "simpler" ones out there but I need one that accounts for the initial velocity being 0 and hence the time taken to get to the max speed. Thanks in advance for any help! James
There are a number of automotive related acceleration calculators. The page source for this site includes freeware javascript: http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/4601/hpcalc.html
You know the acceleration? Is is constant? If yes then: [tex] x = \frac 1 2 a t^2 + V_0 t + x_0 [/tex] Is the general realtionship.
