S = ut + (1/2)at2 ............................(1)

S = ut - (1/2)bt2  ...................................(2)

 

Differntiating eqn. (2) =

dS/dt = u - (1/2).2bt

u - bt = 0

t = u/b ..........................................(3)

Putting t = u/b in eqn. (2)

we get, S = u2/2b or x = u2/2b or u = underroot(2bx)

Similarly  u = underroot2ax/3 is for acceleration.

 

Hence the condition obtained for covering ''x'' meters in minimum time with max. acc. and max. retard. are:-

u = underroot(2bx) and u = underroot2ax/3 is for acceleration.
