The velocity time graph of runner is given in the graph.What is the total distance covered by the runner in 16s?
We know that area under v-t graph gives displacement:-
So, Area = distance = s = area of triangle + area of rectangle
Area of triangle = (1/2) x base x height = (1/2) x 6 x 10 = 30 m
Area of a rectangle = length x breadth = (16 - 6) x 10 = 100 m
Total area = 130 m
Total distance = 130 m
