Solution

+ 0.5 m/s2

The term “retardation” means negative acceleration.
Initial velocity = 10 m/s
Final velocity = 0 m/s
Time taken = 20 s
Acceleration = `"0-10"/20`
⇒ Acceleration = `-0.5  "m/s"^2`
⇒ Retardation = 0.5 `"m/s"^2`

Concept: Rate of Change of Velocity
  Is there an error in this question or solution?
