Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could someone please show me how to solve the following simple problem using the Runge-Kutta (RK4) integration method?

A car at t=0 has acceleration 10m/s/s, velocity 0m/s.

How far would the car travel in 10 seconds?

I know this can be solved using the equations of motion (giving an answer of 500m) but I'm trying to understand how to apply Runge-Kutta to this problem.

Thanks for your attention.
