(a) To find the speed acquired

As the bus starts from the rest

Initial velocity u = 0 m/s

Acceleration a = 0.1 m/s2

Time t = 2 minutes = 2 x 60 = 120 seconds

The equation for acceleration is

a = (v – u)/t

Terminal velocity v = at + u

Substituting the values

= 0.1 x 120 + 0

= 12 m/s

(b) To find the distance traveled

a = 0.1 m/s

v = 12 m/s

u = 0 m/s

t = 120 s

We know that

S = (v2 – u2)/2a

Substituting the values

S = (122 – 02)/ (2 x 0.1)

S = 720 m

Therefore, the speed acquired is 12 m/s and the distance traveled is 720 m.

Summary:

## A bus starting from rest moves with a uniform acceleration of 0.1 m/s2 for 2 minutes. Find (a) the speed acquired and (b) the distance traveled.

A bus starting from rest moves with a uniform acceleration of 0.1 m/s2 for 2 minutes. The speed acquired is 12 m/s and the distance traveled is 720 m.
