Dear Chilukuri

given dv/ds=3

or v=3s

 or a =dv/dt =3 ds/dt


         a= 3*10 =30 m/sec2

Sir,The final velocity of a particle falling freely under gravity is given by V^2-u^2=2gx where x is the distance covered. If V=18kmph g=1000cms^-2 x=120cm the u = ms^-1
Just put all the values simply to get the value of u. Therefore, V^2 – u^2 = 2*g*x (18 * 1000 * 100/60*60)^2 = u^2 + 2*1000*120 u^2 = 250000 – 240000 u^2 = 10,000 u = 100 cm/s

In which type of circuits batteries or the resistances get short circuited
It depends the method U use. Like for thevenin and nortons problem we usually do this thing. for finding net resistance we short circuit the battery and open the current source.
