# If a bus travelling at 40 m/s is subjected to a steady deceleration of 5 m/s^{2}, how long will it take to come to rest?

Answer :

Deceleration, a=-5m/s2

Initial velocity, u=40m/s

Final velocity, v=0m/s

t=?

PREVIOUSAn aircraft traveling at 600 km/h accelerates steadily at 10 km/h per second. Taking the speed of sound as 1100 km/h at the aircraft’s altitude, how long will it take to reach the ‘sound barrier’?NEXTWhat is the difference between ‘distance travelled’ by a body and its ‘displacement’? Explain with the help of a diagram.
