- Homework Statement
- A pinewood derby car starts down a constant slope with a constant acceleration of 2.2 m/s2. What will be its displacement after 2.4 s?

- Relevant Equations
- d=vt+1/2at^2

Answer: 6.3 m

I'm just having trouble understanding 1) how to plug in the formulas correctly and 2) the correct manner of attacking this.

I feel like I'm missing something basic/simple. Any help is greatly appreciated! So far I've got:

D = (0) + .5(2.2m/s^2 x 2.4s)^2
