`t = sqrt((2* "h" )/ "a" )`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Time required to move a Distance under Constant Acceleration** calculator computes the time based on the distance and constant acceleration rate.

**INSTRUCTIONS**: Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**h**) This is the distance - (
**a**) This is the rate of constant acceleration

**Time To Travel (t): ** The calculator returns the time in seconds. However this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The formula for the time required to cross a distance at a constant acceleration is:

`t=sqrt((2*h)/a)`

where:

- t = time required to move distance h
- h = distance string traveled
- a = acceleration
