Projectile Motion

  1. Sep 23, 2005 #1
    I have a real big problem. My physics teacher has given an extra-credit assignment to my class to figure out. He said we can use whatever we want to figure it out. The problem was to rearrange the Projectile Motion equation (d = Vit + 1/2at2) to solve for t.
    So I started out by asking my Math B2 teacher if she knew how to figure it out. After 15 minutes of work she got t = (d/t -vi) 2/a. But she didn't know how to get the second t out of the equation. We both ended up going over to the other math teacher. He got the same thing. Now the three of us are determined to figure out this answer. Can any physics wizard out there help us?
    All I need to know is how to rearrange the Projectile Motion equation (d = Vit + 1/2at2) to solve for t. It must be hard if the school's two math teachers can't figure it out, right?
