Derivitive of the X final equation?

  1. Feb 6, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The derivitive of the Xfinal=.5at2+Vinitialt+Xinitial


    2. Relevant equations
    Xfinal=.5at2+Vinitialt+Xinitial

    Xfinal= Final distance
    Xinitial= Initial distance
    a= Acceleration
    t= Time
    Vinitial= Initial velocity


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have attempted the problem but get stuck almost immediatly.

    Here x(initial), v(initial) and acceleration are constant. So the derivative of the equation with respect to time is
    d(xf)/dt = d(.5at^2)/dt + d(vi*t)/dt
