A particle starts

Answer :


Initial speed = u Final Speed = v

Retardation = a Acceleration = –a

Time taken to come to rest = T

Now, using equations of motion, we get:



Also using another equation of motion:


Now, putting 2 in 1, we get:


Now, for the first half of the path distance covered =

Let the time taken = t

So, using 1 we get:

Now, this is a quadratic equation, on solving this we get:

Since t < T, So,
