Question

A train starting from rest position and moving with uniform acceleration attains a speed of 36km/hr in 10 min.find it's acceleration?


Solution

If a train starts from stationary position then initial velocity of train = 0 

moving uniform acceleration means constant acceleration .

given , 
final velocity ( V) = 36 km/h = 36× 5/18 
= 10m/s 

time taken = 10 minutes = 10× 60sec 
= 600sec 

use kinematics equation , 

V = u + at 

10 = 0 + a × 600 

a = 10/600 = 1/60 m/s² 

a = 0.1667 × 10^-1 m/s² = 1.67 × 10^-2 m/s²
