A train starting from rest attains a velocity of 72 km/hr in 5 minutes. Assuming that the acceleration is uniform find the acceleration. *

Expert Answer
Speed 72 km/hr = 72 × (5/18) = 20 m/s
 
Let us use the relation , v = u + ( a t ) 
 
where v = 20 m/s is final speed , u = 0 m/s is initial speed because train starts from rest , a is acceleration
and t = 5 min = 300 s is time taken to reach the final speed.
 
Hence ,   20  = a ( 300 ) 
 
Hence acceleration  a = 0.067 m/s2
