Solution

## The correct option is C 6.5 m/sGiven, v(t)=15−3t, we will check if the particle has changed its direction or not within the asked time interval, i.e. the time when velocity of the particle becomes zero. ⇒ 15−3t=0⇒ t=5 sec Also, we know that xf−xi=∫t0v(t)dt=∫t0(15−3t)dt ⇒ xf−xi=15t−3t22 Let particle starts from origin i.e xi=0 So, at t=0,xf=0, at t=5,xf=15×5−3×522=752=37.5 m at t=6,xf=15×6−3×622=36 m The motion of the particle can be represented as shown So, the average speed of the particle is 37.5+1.56=396=6.5 m/s  Suggest Corrections  0      Similar questions  Related Videos   Speed and Velocity
