Homework Help: Displacement, Velocity, Acceleration Problem

  1. Sep 10, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    An object starts (t = 0 s) at x = 0 m and is originally moving in the negative direction at a magnitude of 9.6 m/s. The entire time it is moving, an acceleration in the positive x direction is applied to the object. Due to this acceleration after 8.5 seconds the object has returned to x = 0 m. Where will the object be in meters (at x = ____ m) another 14.6 seconds after it has returned to x = 0 m if the acceleration does not change?

    Correct Answer: 380.91 ± 10%
    Attempted Answer: 120.43

    EDIT: PLEASE Delete. I have found the correct method.
