Homework Help: Need help with equation

  1. Sep 21, 2008 #1
    I need help with an equation

    I am finding the speed of an object after 10.0s from rest

    I have a force of 42.3 N
    I have the mass of 11.3 kg
    I have the acceleration of 3.75 m/s

    I'm not sure which equation to use.
    Thanks for any help,
    Kevin

    Hi Husker70,

    First of all, you should post homework questions in the Homework Forums... Second, to solve this problem, you should go find the kinematic equation which involves acceleration, velocity, and time--I promise it is in your book somewhere. Probably in the first or second chapter.

    Sorry for posting in the wrong section. I meant to put it in homework.
    I wasn't thinking that simple of an equation.
    Thanks,
    Kevin
