Mass = 400t.

Initial velocity = 0

Final velocity = 2.5m/s

Distance required to travel = 101m

I used acceleration = (Vf^2 - Vi^2)/2*D for the acceleration but i don't think that is right because does that mean I am wanting it to reach full velocity at the 101 metre mare with that equation?

Once i find the acceleration, my plan is to use F=Ma to find what I think will be the force to overcome being stationary, and knowing I have two 600mm diameter wheels being driven, is the torque just half the force multiplied by the wheel radius?

Any input would be great thanks as I need some guidance.

Thank you.
