painfully slow at home. Hope this helps a bit but feel free to email me at
gawilson@tcia.net if this isn't sufficient:
this is work = change in kinetic energy or Fd = 1/2mv^2 so if you rearrange the
problem to get d by itself, it should be pretty much a quadratic equation, if
you need a plot of v vs d (assuming they use just a numerical approximation of
F).
