Solution

We have to find the time taken to reach the given final velocity.
We have:
Initial velocity (u) = 20 m/s
Final velocity  (v) = 0 m/s
Acceleration for the entire journey (a) = –5 ms2.
Let the time taken be (t).
We can calculate the time taken using the first equation of motion.
`t = (v-u)/a`
Time taken by the bus to come to rest:
= `(0-20)/-5`
= 4 s

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
