A train going from one station to the next on a straight section of track accelerates from rest at 1.4m/s^2 for 15s. It then proceeds at constant speed for 1100m before slowing down at 2.2m/s^2 until it stops at the station. What is the distance between the stations? How long does it take the train to go between stations?

  • physics -

    figure the distances during the acceleration, and the final velocity.

    Then figure out the distance to deaccelerate.

    o...i got that, but what formula do u use to find the time it takes to go between stations?
