Question

The velocity-time graph of a particle is given below. What is the acceleration of the particle?



Your Answer
A

1.5 ms2
 

Your Answer
B

2.5 ms2
 

Correct Answer
C

0.5 ms2
 

Your Answer
D

1 ms2
 


Solution

The correct option is B

0.5 ms2
 


Since the velocity is increasing uniformly, acceleration is constant and it is equal to the slope of the velocity-time graph.
Here, let us suppose (x1,y1)=(0,0) and (x2,y2)=(4,2)
Acceleration = Slope of velocity- time graph
Slope = y2y1x2x1 = 2040=0.5ms2
Hence, acceleration of particle = 0.5ms2
