Q1. A train moving with uniform speed covers a distance of 120 m in 2 s. Calculate:
(i) the speed of the train, (ii) the time it will take to cover 240 m.
Q2. Arrange the following speeds in increasing order:
10 m/s, 1 km/min, 18 km/h.
Q3. A train takes 2 h to reach station B from station A, and then 3 h to return from station B to
station A. The distance between the two stations is 200 km. Find:
(i) average speed, (ii) average velocity of the train.
Q4. A car travels first 30 km with a uniform speed of 60 km/h and the next 30 km with a uniform
speed of 40 km/h. Calculate: (i) the total time of journey, (ii) the average speed of the car.
Q5. A car covers 30 km at a uniform speed of 30 km/h. What should be its speed for the next 90
km if the average sped for the entire journey is 60 km/h.
Q6. A car starting from rest acquires a velocity 180 m/s in 0.05 h. Find the acceleration.
Q7. A car accelerates uniformly from 18 km/h to 36 km/h in 5 s. Calculate the acceleration of the
Q8. A car moving with a speed of 54 km/h is brought to rest within 10 s by applying brakes. Find
the retardation due to brakes.
Q9. A 150 m long train crosses a bridge that is 850 m long in 100 seconds.
I. What is the total distance travelled by the train?
II. What is the speed of the train?
Q10. Consider this situation: A car moves with a velocity of 2 m/s for 10 seconds, and then its
velocity increases to 10m/s in the next 5 seconds. Thereafter its velocity decreases at a uniform
rate until it comes to rest after 10 seconds.
a. Express this entire run of the car on the velocity time graph.
b. From the graph identify the
c. time interval when the car was accelerating
d. Displacement travelled while the car was decelerating
