Starting from rest a particle confined to move along a straight line is accelerated at a rate of 5m/s. Describe the motion of the particle.

The velocity of the particle increases by a constant 5 m/s each second in the same direction. If we graph velocity v. time, we get a straight line with a positive slope. This line goes through the origin.
