(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

a rail carraige has a mass of 1200kg. the train engine shunts it along the track giving it an average accleration of 0.6ms-2. determine the distance travelled by the carraige in 60 seconds if started from rest.

2. Relevant equations

i think its something like V*T + 1/2A*Tsquared

3. The attempt at a solution

0*60 + .5*.6 * 60 squared

this number seems to big what am i doing wrong?
