how can we use the acceleration - time graph of a body to calculate its displacement in a particular time interval?

Dear mayank,


The acceleration-time graph of any object traveling with a constant velocity is the same. This is true regardless of the velocity of the object. An airplane flying at a constant 600 mph (270 m/s), a sloth walking with a constant speed 1 mph (0.4 m/s), and a couch potato lying motionless in front of the TV for hours will all have the same acceleration-time graphs — a horizontal line collinear with the horizontal axis. That's because the velocity of each of these objects is constant. They're not accelerating. Their accelerations are zero. As with velocity-time graphs, the important thing to remember is that the height above the horizontal axis doesn't correspond to position or velocity, it corresponds to acceleration.

it takes a block twice as long to slide down a plane inclined at 45 to the horizontal as it would take for it to slide down the same plane had the plane had the plane been frictionless....
Let coefficient of friction be q then T=√2d/gsin 45 nT = √2d/gsin45- qgcos45 Equationg this we get q= tan 45( n*n -1/ n* n) On solving we get q= tan 45(2*2-1/2*2) (4-1/ 4) (3/4) Cheers!!!
