# A racing car has a uniform acceleration of 4 m s-2. What distance will it cover in 10 s after start?

Answer :

Given,

Initial velocity, u = 0

Acceleration, a = 4 m/s^{2}

And,

Time, t = 10 s

Distance covered, s =?

Now, s = *ut* + *at*^{2}

= 0 × 10 +× 4 × (10)^{2}

= 0 + 2 × 100

= 200 m

Therefore, in 10 seconds racing car will covered a distance of 200 m.

Obtain a relation for the distance travelled by an object moving with a uniform acceleration in the interval between 4^{th} and 5^{th} second.

A car accelerates from 6 ms^{–1} to 16 ms^{–1} in 10 sec. Calculate (a) the acceleration and (b) the distance covered by the car in that time.

A bus increases its speed from 36 km/h to 72 km/h in 10 seconds. Its acceleration is :

What is the acceleration of the lift :

(i) During the first two seconds?

(ii) between second and tenth second?

(iii) during the last two seconds?

Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur - PhysicsA car is moving on a straight road with uniform acceleration. The speed of the car varies with time as follows :

Draw the speed-time graph by chooding a convenient scale. From this graph :

(i) Calculate the acceleration of the car.

(ii) Calculate the distance travelled by the car in 10 seconds.
