        A train starts from rest and moves with constant acc. of 2 m/s^2 for half a minute. The brakes are then apllied and it comes to rest in 1 minute. Find a) Total distance moved. b)max. speed attained by train and c) the position(s) of train at half the max. speed.

the 3 relations used here are : v=u+at          --- 1


                                                        S= ut + at2/2  --- 2


                                                        v2 - u2 = 2aS   --- 3     u = initial vel


                                                                                      v= final velocity and a = acceleration  S = distance travelled


For first 1/2 min,  u =0 and a1 =2 and t1 = 30 sec


so final vel.    v1 = at1        ( using relation 1)


  v1=60 m/sec


after applying brakes, the train starts decelerating


so here v1=u2= 60 m/sec and t2= 60 sec and a2 = -a1              ( using relation 1)


so (a2) = 1 m/sec2


so total distance covered = 1/2*a1*t12 + u22 / 2*a2  

                                               = 1/2*2*302 + 602 / 2*1                 ( using relation 2 and 3)


                                         a) so total distance covered     =   2700 m


                               b)max. speed attained by train is v1=60 m/sec


                               c) the position(s) of train at half the max. speed.


to find positions at speed of 30 m/sec


during accln. : v=u+at                   30 = 2 t   so t = 15 sec


S = 1/2*2*152 whihc gives 225 mts


S1 =225 mts


during deceleration :  v=u+at                30 = 60 -t          so t=30 sec


v2 - u2 = 2aS                so  602 - 302 = 2S2


S2 = 1350 mts frm decelerating point


So at distances  225 mts and 2250 mts ,starting from rest , it has half max. speed

try solvig this question using graphs.


draw the velocity time graph of the motion of train starting from zero velocity and finally comming back to zero.


slope during acceleration is 2.


max speed=0+2*30=60m/s


it reaches half the max speed at 15secs.


total displacement is equal to the area under the graph.


positon of train at half the max speed is the area under the graph till the half max speed.


i think its the shortest solution and also the quickest!!!!
