An OpenStudy user's speed is 40 medals per day and his acceleration is 2 medal/day^2. If it takes 4,500 medals to reach the Legend rank, how many days will it take for him to reach the rank?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its both, physics and math.Arguably physics is nothing without math though :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well first of all, his acceleration cant be 2 medals/day a = v / t since you postulated that v = 40 per day a = 40 per day because a = delta V / delta t

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I would consider it an initial velocity. Its like saying a car is going at 40 ft/s, and accelerating at 2 ft/s^2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3To solve the problem use the formula:\[d = x_0+v_0t+\frac{1}{2}at^2\]Set d to 4500, intial position to 0, intiial velocity to 40, and acceleration to 2. Solve for t.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 4500 = 40t + t^2?
