    Can someone please tell me what drugs is everyone taking?

    v*dx/dt = height?
    Huh?

    I just think this is silly. It doesn't make sense from a logical point of view.

    v*s = t ????

    v = s / t, so you must s/v = t, but how do you get vs = t?

    could it be an equation for something accelerating upwards ?

    Could you at least place the problem in context? Just throwing down terms without any frame of reference doesn't actually tell us anything.

    dx/dt is measuring what? How do you get dx/dt as distance in your purported topic of "velocity * distance = height"? Most mechanics problems I can think of don't really place distance as a derivative of anything.

    First of all dx/dt is a velocity not a position. Second of all the units don't match up regardless, so somethings wrong..

    Why don't you actually state the problem instead
