I was calculating the time a piston would take to open under a certain force.

Instead of calculating the time it'd take to open, say, .03 meters or .08 feet, I picked a unit which would give me nicer numbers to work with: inches.

Of course, saying inches/second is a tad deceptive, as I acctualy preformed the calculation using meters/second/second (as an acceleration, that is)... but whatever.
