    A c program to evaluate the newtonian equations.

    I am stuck with a certain c programming code here,please help.
    Am supposed to write a c program capable of evaluating any of the three Newton's equations of motion.
    The program should ask which equation/law of the three he/she wants to evaluate.
    He/she should then be prompted for the inputs he/she has. The program should then output the result i.e the value of the missing variable in any possible situation.
    The output should be in SI units.
    The program should also be able to solve any of the possibilities given what the user inputs.

    a) do you actually know what they are?

    b) are you able to solve them yourself on paper?

    c) given an input of x, could you solve y = x + 1 and print out the value of y?

    If you can do those three things, then you need to be posting YOUR attempt at the problem, rather than just dumping your assignment and expecting code on a plate.

    U know i dont know what u think am trying to do here,what i need is a skeleton to help me feed my code not an assignement to be completed for me and for your info, i dont study programming in school,so i would apreciate it if u offered me assistance and not stuff i already know. As for your three queries am comfortable with them.
    Thank you.

    The "skeleton" has already been provided: it is the instructions that you have been given.

    So, this isn't a school assignment? It sounds like one. Salem did indeed offer you assistance; it so happens that you did not tell us that those stuff were stuff that you already know.

    That's good. So, pick one of the three equations and write a simplified version of the program in which the user is prompted for the input to the equation and then the program prints the output.

    If you are learning C for yourself to validate your working out in your Physics class, you are going to have to look at some tutorial/examples.

    For a learning series, there is a great one here C Tutorial - Learn C - Cprogramming.com

    As for some examples of "y=x+1" programs, I found some input/output here for you to look at Basic C Programs : C Programs A-Z - Basic C Programs | C Programming Examples

    I'd advise that you declare your main function like this though, as you want no arguments rather than an unspecified amount
    Code:
    int main(void)
    And of coarse, Newton's equations can be found on Wiki.
