An object dropped from a cliff falls with a constant acceleration of 10m/s2. Find its speed 2s after it was dropped?
Solution:Given ,accelaration =10m/s
time=2s
speed=?
therfore,speed=distance travelled\total time taken
s=10\2=5(ans) . is it ok.

  1. Not really.
    For an object which accelerates from rest, the variation of speed with time is given by:
    final velocity=initial velocity + acceleration * time
    = 0 + 10 m/s² * 2 s
    =20 m/s
    (note how the units cancel to give m/s)

  2. We will apply v=u+at . 0+2×10= 20m/s
