Is this correct?
Why the time is minutes instead of seconds?
Thanks!

WWGD said:By dimensional analysis your t has no units.
WWGD said:What I mean is you're dividing two expressions with m/s as units, which cancel out. This tells you you're doing something wrong somewhere. I guess you want to use t=d/v? Then d is given in meters ( or another unit of distance) . In your case you used 1 m/s , which is not a measure of distance.
To calculate time with delta-v and velocity, you can use the formula t = Δv/v, where t is the time, Δv is the change in velocity, and v is the velocity. This formula assumes that the acceleration is constant.
Delta-v, also known as change in velocity, is a measure of the difference between the initial and final velocity of an object. It is directly related to time and velocity through the equation t = Δv/v. This means that the greater the delta-v, the longer it will take for an object to reach a certain velocity.
No, the formula t = Δv/v only applies to situations where the acceleration is constant. If the acceleration is not constant, you will need to use more complex equations to calculate time.
The mass of an object does not directly affect the calculation of time with delta-v and velocity. However, it does affect the amount of force required to change the velocity, which in turn affects the acceleration and ultimately the time it takes to reach a certain velocity.
Yes, delta-v and velocity can be used to calculate time in space travel. In fact, this is a common method used by scientists and engineers to plan and execute space missions. However, the calculations may become more complex due to factors such as gravity and the changing mass of the spacecraft as fuel is consumed.
