I've gone blank on writing this program. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Java program will determine the distance an object falls within a specfic time period.  time should be displayed using seconds.  the given formula is: d= 1/2 gt2. Return the distance, in meters, and use values 1 thru 10 as arguments.  Here's what I have thus far, but a long way from where I should be, I think.
import java.util.Scanner; 
 
 
 
public class Distance
{
public static void main(String args[])
	{  
   double kilOmeters = 0;
   double time = 0;
   double speed = 0;
	String input;
 
 
	java.util.Scanner UserInput = new java.util.Scanner(System.in);
   
      System.out.println("Enter Km: ");
      kilOmeters=UserInput.nextDouble();
     
      time = kilOmeters/60;
      System.out.println("Time seconds = " + time);
		
	}
}

      gravity=UserInput.nextDouble();
 
      meters = 0.5 * gravity * time * time;
      System.out.println("Distance = " + meters);
