    and i cant even check the units cause it flags my numberical answer as wrong iv done sig digits and non sig digits just rounding to a really long answer.

    the units is meters over m/s times seconds

    im not quite sure what that reduces too but i cant chcek what i think it is cause it keeps saying my numberical value is wrong
    m/s^2?? maybe

    Then why don't you do what Raoh suggested and tell us exactly what you did and what you think the answer is? Are you using a calculator or doing the arithmetic by hand?
