distance travelled in n seconds:

S1= un + 1/2a(n^2)

distance travelled in (n-1) seconds:

S2 = u(n-1) + 1/2a((n-1)^2)

distance travelled in nth second:


= u + 1/2a(2n-1)

actually the other given answer is also correct.

displacement in the nth second,we r talking about.suppose accleration is a and the initial velocity is u.


if i will be said to find out the displacement in the nth i will find out the displacement in the n-1 th second,can be easily found by the above given equation.


now this is the total displacement in n-1 n second the displacent is :


so i f i want the displacement in that n second nly,so i need to subtract the total displacement in n second and in n-1 second.


actually to make this answer correct u need to write the seconds (dimensionally correct)

so,u(1s)+1/2a(2n-1s)(1s) is the correct answer.if u will keep on writing the units from the first then u will get this equation only.

										Distance travelled by a uniformly accelerated body in nth second can be obtained by subtracting the distance travelled by the body in (n-1) second from the distance travelled by the body in n seconds.If, u= initial velocity of the body;a= uniform acceleration of the body;Sn,Sn-1= distances travelled by the body in n seconds and (n-1) seconds respectively,Dn = distance travelled in nth second.Then,     Dn = Sn-Sn-1We know that the distance travelled in t seconds is given by; S= ut+1/2 at×t=> distance travelled in n seconds is,                 Sn= un+1/2an×nDistance travelled in (n-1) seconds is,          Sn-1= u (n-1)+1/2a (n-1)(n-1)Now putting these values in, Dn=Sn-Sn-1We get, Dn=[un+1/2an×n]-[u (n-1)+1/2a (n-1)(n-1)]     =un+1/2an×n-un+u-1/2an×n+an-a/2     =u+an-a/2     =u+a (n-1/2)      or  Dn= u+a/2 (2n-1)
