# A car starts from rest with an acceleration of 6 m/s2 which decreases to zero linearly with time, in 10 seconds, after which the car continues at a constant speed. Find the time required for the car to travel 400 m from the start.

Asked by Arushi Juyal 12th November 2017, 3:07 PM
Acceleration decreases from initial value 6 m/s2 to zero in 10 seconds. Hence acceleration is function of time.
From the definition of acceleration we can write
From the above relation, we can get the velocity after 10 second is 30 m/s

Distance travelled for the time 10 second is given by

So initial 200 m travelled in 10 seconds and the next 200 m is travelled with constant speed 30 m/s.

Hence total time is 10+6.66 = 16.66 s
