To calculate distance, you can use the formula: d = (vf^2-vi^2) / 2a, where d is the distance, vf is the final speed, vi is the initial speed, and a is the acceleration.
Acceleration is typically measured in meters per second squared (m/s^2), while speed and distance can be measured in any units of length such as meters (m), kilometers (km), or miles (mi).
If the acceleration is negative, it means that the object is decelerating or slowing down. In this case, you would use the negative value in the formula and the resulting distance would be negative as well.
Yes, this formula can be used for any type of motion where acceleration is constant. This includes both linear and circular motion.
No, this formula only calculates the total distance traveled. To find the distance traveled in a specific time period, you would need to use a different formula such as d = vit + 1/2at^2, where t is the time interval.
