Question

A body moving with some initial velocity and having uniform acceleration attains a final velocity v m/s after travelling x m. If its final velocity is v = $$\sqrt{180 - 7x}$$, find the acceleration of the body.

A
- 3.5 m/s2
B
-7 m/s2
C
-15 m/s2
D
-30 m/s2

Solution

The correct option is C - 3.5 $$m/s^2$$Let initial velocity $$=u$$ and $$a \text{(uniform acceleration)}, v=\sqrt{180-7x}$$$$x=\text{distance traveled}$$By applying third equation of motion, $$v^2=u^2+2as\\ \Longrightarrow {(\sqrt{180-7x})}^2=u^2+2as\\ \Longrightarrow 180-7x=u^2+2ax$$On comparing both sides, $$u^2=180$$ and $$2a=-7$$$$\Longrightarrow a=-3.5m/s^2$$Physics
