# 15.A particle moves along a straight line OX. At a time t (in seconds) the distance x (in metres) of the particle from O is given by        How long would the particle travel before coming to rest? 24m 40m 56m 56m

C.

56m

Velocity is rate of change of distance or displacement.
Distance travelled by the particle is

We know that, velocity is rate of change of distance i.e.,

but final velocity v = 0

Hence, distance travelled by the particle before coming to rest is given by

A toy car with charge q moves on a frictionless horizontal plane surface under the influence of a uniform electric field $\stackrel{\to }{E}$ . Due to the force q $\stackrel{\to }{E}$, its velocity increases from 0 to 6 m/s in one-second duration. At that instant, the direction of the field is reversed. The car continues to move for two more seconds under the influence of this field. The average velocity and the average speed of the toy car between 0 to 3 seconds are respectively

• 2 m/s, 4 m/s

• 1 m/s, 3 m/s

• 1.5 m/s, 3 m/s

• 1 m/s, 3.5 m/s
