Hi all.

Start Point A at a velocity of 100mm/sec

Finish Point B at a velocity of 40 mm/sec

Distance to travel = 300mm

Time to do it in = 2 seconds

Now obviously we have to apply an excessive acceleration to a "Point C" (between A and B) to achieve the 300mm movement within the 2s time.

So we have an acceleration Point A to Point C

Then a deceleration from Point C to Point B

Point C will be the peak velocity to achieve the distance in the time constraints

Can anyone point me in the direction to solve the minimum value of acceleration, such that acceleration = deceleration

Cheers
