Language/Type: JavaScript functions parameters
Author: Melissa Hovik (on 2016/09/25)

In physics, a common useful equation for finding the position s of a body in linear motion at a given time t (in seconds), based on its initial position s0, initial velocity v0, and rate of acceleration a, is the following:

s = s0 + v0 t + 1/2 * at2

Write a function getDisplacement that takes in parameters s0, t, and v0 and returns the resulting position, s, using 9.8 as the acceleration constant for gravity.
