Question

A bus decreases its speed from 80 km h−1 to 60 km h−1 in 5 s. Find the acceleration of the bus.

Solution

 

Initial speed of the bus, u = 80 km/h`= 80xx5/18=22.22" m/s"`

Final speed of the bus, v = 60 km/h`= 60xx5/18=16.66" m/s"`

Time take to decrease the speed, t = 5 s

`"Acceleration, "a=(v-u)/t=(16.66-22.22)/5=-1.112" m/s"^2`

Here, the negative sign of acceleration indicates that the velocity of the car is decreasing.

 
  Is there an error in this question or solution?
