Homework Help: D=Vavet formula

  1. Apr 11, 2010 #1
    I have a question regarding the formula d=Vave*t
    can this formula be used when you have constant acceleration ?

    Yes it can. In this case the average velocity is half the sum of the velocity at the beginning of time interval t plus the velocity at the end of time time interval t. In other words

    d = (vinitial + vfinal) t/2
