# A racing car has a uniform acceleration of 4 m s-2. What distance will it cover in 10 s after start?

H Harsh Kankaria

Given, Initial speed of the racing car, u = $0\ ms^{-1}$

Acceleration of the car, $a$ = $4\ ms^{-2}$

Time taken, $t = 10\ s$

We know, $s = ut+\frac{1}{2}at^2$

$\\ \implies s = 0(10) + \frac{1}{2}(4)(10)^2 \\ \implies s = 2(100) \\ \implies s = 200\ m$

Therefore, the distance travelled by the racing car in $10\ s$ is $200\ m$
