Homework Help: Quick Physics Q (total distance)

  1. Oct 18, 2004 #1
    I have an initial velocity of 3.0 m/s, and an acceleration of 5.612 m/s^2 over 8 seconds. How do I calculate the total distance travelled? TiA.

    The equation is one of the fundamental velocity/distance equations.
    Which one contains initial velocity, time, and acceleration to solve for distance?

    Figured it out in class today... would anyone happen to know where I can get a list of these formulas on the net or something... I want to memorize them.
