Q ; A particle is projected vertically upward with an initial velocity 40 m/s. Find the displacement and distance covered by particle in 6 seconds . Take g = 10 m/s

Answer given is 60 m  , 100 m

My Answer coming is 60 m , 90 m


Q :A particle moves in straight line with uniform acc. its vel. at time t=0 is v1 and at time t =t is v2 . the avg vel. of particle in this time interval is ?


Q:A particle moves in a straight line with const. acc..If it covers 10 m in first second and extra 10 m in next second.Find its initial velocity?

Dear Shobhit,

This is a very straight forward question

at t = 0, u=40

since gravity is in the opposite direction as of velocity, it will retard the motion and a time will come when its upward velocity will become 0.

to calculate that time, use 1st equation of motion

v = u + a*t,    a = -10 ,

0 = 40 - 10 * t

=> t = 4 s

at t = 4 s particle will start coming down

Distance covered till 4 s ,

v^2 = u^2 + 2* a * s

s= 40*40/2*10

s= 80 m

from t=4 to t=6 , it will come down

s1=0.5*a* t^2



Displacement = 80-20 = 60m

Distance = 80 + 20 = 100m(as it covers 20m coming down)

For Q2

avg. vel.= (v1+v2)/2

since acc is uniform its avg. vel can be calculated very easily


for Q3

Let its initial velocity = u

and acc.= a

velocity after 1 sec = u + a


10= u + 1/2*a*1^2(after 1 s)

for next sec,

20 = u+1/2*a*2^2 

Taking difference of these equations, we get

a = 20/3

and putting this value of a in 1st eqn , we get u=20/3 m/s
