Measured from a chosen reference frame, the particle‘s position is +2 m at t = 0, and it is at the origin when t = 10 s. If the particle is observed to change its direction of motion at t = 6 s, find the acceleration. Ans : 0.2 m/s 2 2. A man running at a speed of 2 m/s starts to accelerate at t = 0 with a constant acceleration of 0.4 m/s 2 for 10 s. He maintains his top speed for 5 minutes and then slows down with a constant deceleration. If the man runs a total distance of 1900 m from t = 0 to the time he stops, find his deceleration.
