# 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 ? - Science

Short Note

Describe the motion of a body which is accelerating at a constant rate of 10 m s2. 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/s2
Time taken, (t) = 2 s
We can calculate the distance travelled by using the 2nd 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?
