This is not strictly a physics problem, but I thought this would be the best place to ask...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am having trouble calculating the time between events using an acceleration formula. I have the rate of deceleration, and would like to know the time until the next full unit occurs.

Am I using the right formula? Can anyone see a way to isolate time? Maybe suggest a variation on the formula that would have the effect I am looking for?Code (Text):

d = 1.0000000 cigarettes

v = 0.0069444 cig/min

a = -0.0000017 cig/min/min

d = v*t + (a*t*t)/2
