I am currently working on a program that governs nautical navigation by warships and encomposes many simple geometric algorithms that assist ships in finding courses, distances and speeds to different points in space. (in my case, ocean).
My question is as follows:
I need to create algorithm which will take the distance to the point travelled to and the ship's deceleration and current speed and will return the distance from the destination in which the ship should start decelerating in order to reach it's destination exactly.
I know it's a simple problem but I'm after about 8hrs of programming and have reached a blank in thought... I will appreciate pseudo code but please NO C++ CODE
