A bus starting from rest moves with a uniform acceleration of 0.1 m s-2 for 2 minutes. Find

(a) the speed acquired

Views

Given, The bus starts from rest. Hence, the initial speed of the bus = $0\ ms^{-1}$

Acceleration of the bus, $a$ = $0.1\ ms^{-2}$

Time is taken, $t = 2\ min = 2\times60\ s = 120\ s$

(a) We know, $v = u+at$

$\\ \implies v = 0+(0.1)(120) = 12\ ms^{-1}$

Therefore, the speed acquired by the bus is $12\ ms^{-1}$
