D = 0.5 (at^2)

    1. d = 0.5 (at^2) solve for t in terms of a and d

    Probably really simple but I have no clue where to start from...

    d=(at^2/2) is the same as your equation, and try and solve from that

    d = 0.5(a)(t^2), maybe that will help.

    Alright I think I got it. A= 2d/t^2, t = square root of 2d/a.
