### Question

Write a program that allows the user to enter a time in seconds and then outputs how far an object would drop if it is in freefall for that length of time. Assume no friction or resistance from air and a constant acceleration of 32 feet per second due to gravity. Use the equation

Distance = * acceleration * time2

``````#include<iostream>
using namespace std;

#define ACCELERATION 32

int main()
{
//Variables
int time;
double distance;

//Input from the user
cout<<" Enter time(Seconds):";
cin>>time;

//Compute distance using the formula:
//distance=(acceleration*time^2)/2
distance = ((ACCELERATION * time *time)/2);

//Display result
cout<<"Traveled distance:" << distance <<"\n";
}``````

Result output:

``````Enter time(Seconds):60
Traveled distance  :57600``````
