## Main Question or Discussion Point

so if A is the acceleration

and T is time

and D is distance

then

D = A * T^2

right????

and T is time

and D is distance

then

D = A * T^2

right????

Here's a good intro for you:so if A is the acceleration

and T is time

and D is distance

then

D = A * T^2

right????

Oopsies. I didn't realize the link didn't follow me down a couple of click levels. I'll have to figure out how to fix that.

In the mean time, just click on Mechanics, and then on Velocity & Acceleration.

Does that work okay?

Nope, it's (A *T^2 )/2so if A is the acceleration

and T is time

and D is distance

then

D = A * T^2

right????

So 9 seconds and 32 f/s (1g) would cover about one quarter mile, 1320 feet.

32*81=2592, divide by 2=1296 feet. A true quarter mile would be about 9.08 seconds.
