T=square root of (2S/a).........{because u is normally assumed to be zero when not stated}

1. move all right hand-side to left to get the coefficient of t
2. ut+(1/2)at2-s =0
t= u+(1/2)at2/s


let me get my pen and paper sharp sharp  , just saw the announcement in my inbox now


S=ut + [(1/2)at2]
s=ut + at2/2 .(cross multiply to get;
2s=ut + at2.(making t to stand alone,it becomes;
2s=u-ut + a-at2
2s=t + t2
t=root s. OR t=s^1/2
