import java.util.Scanner;

public class RunwayLength {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        //Display Program Information
        System.out.println("This Program Calculates The Minimum Runway Length "
                + "Needed For An Airplane To Take Off.\n");

        //create Scanner 
        Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);

        //prompt user to enter details
        System.out.println("Enter speed (in meters per second) and "
                + "acceleration (in meters/second squared):");
        double speed = input.nextDouble();
        double acceleration = input.nextDouble();

        //calculate length 
        double length = ((speed * speed) / (2 * acceleration));
        //format length to 4 decimal places
        length = (int)(length * 10000) / 10000.0;

        //display the result
        System.out.println("The minimum runway length for this airplane is "
                + length + "\n");
