a car accelerates from rest at a constant rate 'a' for some time. after which it decelerates at a constant rate'b' and comes to rest. if the total time elapsed is t second, evaluate
1) the maximum velocity reached and
2) the total distance travelled.

• physics -

max velocity=at

distance= 1/2 at^2+at-1/2 bt^2

• physics -

32 metre
