A motorboat starting from rest on a lake accelerates in a straight line at a constant rate of 3.0 m s -2 for 8.0 s. How far does the boat travel during this time?

Dear Student

Given Initial velocity of motorboat, u = 0
Acceleration of motorboat, a = 3.0 m s^-2
Time under consideration, t = 8.0 s
Distance, s = ut + (1/2)at^2
Therefore, distance travel by motorboat = 0 x 8 + (1/2)3.0 x 8 2
= (1/2) x 3 x 8 x 8 m
= 96 m

Thanks
