A light-rail train going from one station to the next on a straight section of track accelerates from rest at 1.1 {\rm m/s}^2 for 20 {\rm s}. It then proceeds at constant speed for 1100 {\rm m} before slowing down at 2.2 {\rm m/s}^2 until it stops at the station.

What is the distance between stations?
How much time does it take the train to go between stations?

  • Physics - ,

    1st acceleration: s = .5 * 1.1 * 400 = 220m
    velocity attained: 1.1*20 = 22m/s

    2nd acceleration: 22m/s / 2.2m/s^2 = 10s
    2nd distance = .5 * 2.2 * 100 = 55m

    distance = 220 + 1100 + 55 = 1375m

    It takes 80 seconds to travel between stations

  • Physics - ,

    How did you get 80 seconds?
