# the motors of an electric train give it an acceleration of 1m/s2 and the brks give a negavtive acceleration of 3m/s2. find the shortest time interval in which train can make a journey between two stations 1210m apart

The train starts from rest and accelerates to reach a maximum velocity v after which it starts decelerating.

Let s be the distance covered while accelerating and so (1210 - s) will be the distance covered while decelerating.

Hence, we have for acceleration

v2 = u2 + 2as = 2as              ...... (1)

And we have for deceleration

02 = v2 + 2d(1210 - s)
-v2 = -2d(1210 - s)
v2 = 2d(1210 - s)                 ...... (2)

From equations (1) and (2), we have

Now, using equation v  = u + at for both cases, we have
