a car start from rest and accelerate uniformly until it reaches a velocity of 30m/s after 5 seconds. it travels with uniformly velocity for 15 seconds and it then brought to rest in 10 seconds with the uniform retardation. calculate the total distance travel;

(1) total distance after 5s is 75m

(2) total distance after 30s is 675m

(2) total distance after 30s is 675m

1) u=0

T=5

a=30/5=6m/s²

S=ut +½at²

S=0 +½*6*5²

S= 75metres in the first 5 seconds

2) distance in 30 sec

Since we have the distance for the first 5secs it then leaves us with 25 secs

When the body was in uniform velocity of 3om/s for 15 secs. The distance covered will be the area of the shape which in this case is a rectangle.

Area or rectangle = L X B=30 x 15=450metres

For the deceleration part for 10 secs at 30m/s

The shape here is a triangle.

Area of triangle =½L xB =10 x 30/2. =75metres

Therefore distance in 30 secs is 75m +450m +75m =675m
