At the end of a race a runner decelerates from a velocity of 7.00 m/s at a rate of 0.500 m/s2.
(a) How far does she travel in the next 14.0 s in meters?

bobpursley,
distance= vi*141/2 .5 14^2

Physics 
Lindsey,
wait what??? i don't understand the equation??

Physics 
bobpursley,
vi times 14 second
plus
1/2 times 1/2 times 14 times 14 
Physics 
Lindsey,
its wrong....i got 147 for what you said but it doesnt work

Physics 
NightWatchman,
Exactly. You can't just throw equations out there and expect people to understand. That's the reason why we're here, is because we DON'T understand. SO, can you please simplify this problem a little more?
