Q. 23.5( 2 Votes )

There is an argument about uniform acceleration between Mr X and Mr Y. Mr X says “acceleration means that farther you go faster you go”. Mr Y says “acceleration means that longer you go the faster you go”. Whose statement is correct?
A. Mr X

B. Mr Y

C. Both

D. None

Answer :

Mr. X is right, since he says “the farther you go the faster you go”, which implies, the more distance we travel in a given time the more is our velocity and thus he is right.

Whereas Mr. Y says “the longer you go the faster you go”. Now, longer means more time. Hence he is saying that more time you take, more the velocity you have, which is completely wrong.
