Enter the initial velocity, acceleration, and total time into the calculator to convert the acceleration into the total distance.

## Acceleration to Distance Formula

The following formula can be used to calculate distance from an acceleration.

D = v*t + 1/2*a*t^2

- Where D is the distance
- v is the initial velocity
- a is the acceleration
- t is the time.

## Acceleration to Distance Conversion

The conversion from acceleration to a distance involves multiplying the average acceleration by the time squared. When an initial velocity is included, you must add that component in as well as described by the equation above.

## Acceleration to Distance Example

How to calculate distance from acceleration?

**First, determine the initial velocity.**If initially at rest, assume this value to be 0.

**Next, determine the acceleration.**Calculate the average acceleration throughout the time.

**Next, determine the total time.**Calculate the total time of motion.

**Finally, calculate the distance.**Calculate the distance using the equation above.

## FAQ

**How do you convert acceleration to distance?**

Calculating distance from acceleration is as easy as using this formula: D = v*t + 1/2*a*t^2. Where v is the velocity, t is time, and a is the acceleration.
