Calculate Change In Acceleration Of Particle Moving In Straight Line


A particle is initially at rest at point A on a straight line ABCD. The particle moves from point A to B with uniform acceleration, reaching B with the speed of 12m/s after 2 seconds. The acceleration then alters to a constant 1m/s2 and 8 uniformly to come to rest at D after further 10 seconds.

(i) Draw a velocity-time graph for the motion

(ii) Find acceleration of particle when travelling from A to B

(iii) Find speed of particle on reaching C

(iv) Find retardation of particle when travelling from C to D

(v) Find Total distance from A to D



The question belongs to Physics and it discusses about calculating change in acceleration of a particle in motion in a straight line between points ABCD.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
