Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what would it be in this case though? like what number?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Actually the first equation you should use is this one \[v _{f}=v _{i}+a \Delta t\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this will help you compute your acceleration.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh so first we solve for acceleration and then plug it into the other formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then you could actually just use the formula \[v _{f}^{2}=v _{i}^{2}+2a \Delta x\] and compute the total distance.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you actually won't even need the first formula, so you can disregard it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what did u end up getting for acceleration because i got 4 and then did the problem and got it wrong..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you should setup the problem and show me how you did it. but the answer came out to be 39.7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol yeah i figured it out haha i have some more questions and i dont know what formulas to use and i have my test tomorrow, would u mind helping me out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont mind reposting it so i could give u the best answer but would u mind helping me?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sure. could you make a new thread for it though? This one is cluttered now.
