#### Question

Describe the motion of a body which is accelerating at a constant rate of 10 m s^{–}^{2}. If the body starts from rest, how much distance will it cover in 2 s ?

#### Solution

We have to find the distance travelled by the body. We have the following information given,

So, Initial velocity, (u) = 0 m/s

Acceleration, (a) = 10 m/s^{2}

Time taken, (t) = 2 s

We can calculate the distance travelled by using the 2^{nd}^{ }equation of motion,

`s = ut + 1/2 at^2`

Put the values in above equation to find the distance travelled by the body,

`(s) = 0(2) + 1/2(10)(2)^2`

= 20 m

Is there an error in this question or solution?
