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

I know this is so easy but right now I am a box of rocks. I think I am doing too much calculus and physcis problems and just can not think of the simple things.

What I am trying to do is solve this problem.

Problem:

A crate with mass 34.0 initially at rest on a warehouse floor is acted on by a net horizontal force of 140

1) What acceleration is produced?

Answer is 4.12 m/s^2

2) How far does the crate travel in 14.0 s?

I know the initial position is 0 since the crate is at rest, and the acceleration is constant here so I need to figure the final position after 14.0 seconds at this acceleration.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
