Tiny-tim deserves the most patient helper of the year award.

How do people expect to do physics with math without the math part...

The most helpful thing would be a huge math review imo.

God Bless you tiny-tim... -Scrooge

(0)(Δt) interesting, so, if I calculate this, it is 0, (0)(anything) is always 0, interesting.

what is 0 + ½?
You're either woefully unprepared, or you're trolling. This thread is closed.

By the way, with constant acceleration, the average speed over an interval is the same as the average of the initial and final speeds.

If the car accelerated at 3 meters per second squared (NOT "3 meters squared"- you should know better) then in 10 seconds it will have gone from 0 m per second to 30 meters per second and the average of those two numbers is 15. At an average 15 meters per second, how far will it have gone in those 10 seconds?
