Solution

## The correct option is B 625mThe initial velocity travelled is 625mThe accleration is α=10m/s2The time is t=5sApply the equation of motionv=u+atThe velocity is v=0+10.5=50m/s.The distance travelled in the first 5s iss=ut+12at2=0.5+12.10.52=125mThedistancetravelledinthefollowing10siss1=ut1=50.10=500mThetotaldistancetravelledisd=s+s1=125+500=625m
