#### Question

A drunkard walking in a narrow lane takes 5 steps forward and 3 steps backward, followed again by 5 steps forward and 3 steps backward, and so on. Each step is 1 m long and requires 1 s. Plot the *x*-*t*graph of his motion. Determine graphically and otherwise how long the drunkard takes to fall in a pit 13 m away from the start.

Figure shows the *x-t *plot of one-dimensional motion of a particle. Is it correct to say from the graph that the particle moves in a straight line for *t *< 0 and on a parabolic path for *t *> 0? If not, suggest a suitable physical context for this graph.
