# A train starting from a railway station and moving with uniform acceleration attains a speed of 40 km h^{-1} in 10 minutes. Find its acceleration.

Answer :

**Given:**

Initial speed, u = 0 (As it starts from rest)

Final speed, v = 40 km/h (Given in Question)

We know 1 km=1000 m and 1 hour=60 x 60 seconds)

=

= 11.11 m/sAnd,

Time taken, t = 10 minutes (Given in Question)= 10 × 60 seconds (As 1 Minute= 60 Seconds)

= 600 s**Formula used:**

by the first equation of motion,

v = u + a × t

where v, Final velocity

u, initial velocity

t, time taken to reach to final velocity

a, acceleration of the train

By rearranging the Equation , we get

a =

a =

a =a = 0.0185 m/s

^{2}or 0.067 km/ min
