The formula for calculating distance traveled is DeltaD = vf - vi, where vf is the final velocity and vi is the initial velocity.
Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity over time. Therefore, the longer an object accelerates, the greater the change in velocity and the greater the distance traveled (DeltaD) will be.
Yes, distance traveled (DeltaD) can be negative if the object is moving in the opposite direction of its initial velocity. This means that the object is moving backwards or decelerating.
Time is a crucial factor in calculating both distance traveled (DeltaD) and acceleration. The longer the time, the greater the distance traveled and the greater the acceleration will be.
To calculate distance traveled (DeltaD) when given acceleration and time, you can use the formula DeltaD = 0.5 * a * t^2, where a is the acceleration and t is the time. This formula is based on the kinematic equation for displacement.
