Homework Help: M/s^3 to m/s^2

  1. Oct 6, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    distance= z + b*time + x*(time^2) + y*(time^3)


    I have to calculate after how long time the speed has increased by 10 m/s

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have no idea what to do with m/s^3

    Your problem statement is unclear.

    Please post the complete and exact wording of the problem, as it appears in your text or was otherwise supplied to you.

    Yeah, sorry, I didn't write the formula correctly that was given in this exercise.. I edited the OP.
    distance= z + b*time + x*(time^2) + y*(time^3)

    z is some distance
    b is starting speed

    I have really bad English when it comes to terminology, so I hope you can understand now.

    How is the velocity related to the distance travelled?
