Question 89 Exercise

a) Derive the formula: \mathrm{s=ut+\frac1 2 at^2}

b) A train starting from a stationary position and moving with uniform acceleration attains a speed of 36km per hour in 10 minutes. Find its acceleration.


a) Average velocity = (initial velocity + final velocity)/2

= u + v/2

Distance travelled = (average velocity ) (time)

s = (u+v/2) (t)

s = (2u+at/2) (t)

s = (2u + at)(t)/2


\mathrm{s=ut+\frac1 2 at^2}


s is the distance travelled by the body

t is the time taken

u is the initial velocity

v is the final velocity

b) Acceleration = final velocity – initial velocity/time taken = 0.016 \mathrm{m/s^2}
