Train speed

The train speed is decreased from 72 km/h to 36 km/h in 50 seconds. Assuming that the train movement is continuously slowing, find the acceleration and the distance it travels.

Correct answer:

a =  -0.2 m/a2
s =  750 m

Step-by-step explanation:

t=50 s v1=72 km/h m/s=72:3.6  m/s=20 m/s v2=36 km/h m/s=36:3.6  m/s=10 m/s  a=tv2v1=501020=51 m/a2=0.2 m/a2
s=v1 t+21 a t2=20 50+21 51 502=750 m
