BJP4 Exercise 2.1: displacement

Language/Type: Java basics escape sequences println
Author: Marty Stepp (on 2016/09/08)

In physics, a common useful equation for finding the position s of a body in linear motion at a given time t, based on its initial position s0, initial velocity v0, and rate of acceleration a, is the following:

s = s0 + v0 t + ½ at2

Write code to declare variables for s0 with a value of 12.0, v0 with a value of 3.5, a with a value of 9.8, and t with a value of 10, and then write the code to compute s on the basis of these values. At the end of your code, print the value of your variable s to the console.
