# A train starting from rest moves with a uniform acceleration of 0.2 m/s^{2} for 5 minutes. Calculate the speed acquired and the distance travelled in this time.

Answer :

A = 0.2 m/s^{2}(Given)

We know 1 Minute= 60 seconds

∴ 5 Minute= 300 seconds

U = 0 m/s(As the train is starting from rest)

On applying the formula **v= u+at **we get

^{2}×300 seconds

v= 60 m/s

On applying the formula **v ^{2 }-u^{2}= 2as** we get

^{2}-(0)

^{2}= 2×0.2×s

s=

=9000m

s= 9km
