A particle starts

Answer :

Here,

Initial speed = u Final Speed = v


Retardation = a Acceleration = –a


Time taken to come to rest = T


Now, using equations of motion, we get:


..A


..1


Also using another equation of motion:




..2


Now, putting 2 in 1, we get:



..3


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,
