A train travels along a straight horizontal track with constant acceleration. Points *A, B *and *C *are on the track with *B *between *A *and *C. *The distance *AB *is 1200 m and the distance *BC *is 2500 m. As the train passes *B, *its speed is 26ms–1. The train takes 60 s to travel from *A *to *B.*

B) Determine the acceleration of the train?

According to the previous answer the velocity of the train at A is 14m/s. From A to B the train takes 60s to travel and at B the speed of the train is 26m/s. All this time the train has accelerated.

Acceleration of train `= (26-14)/60 = 12/60 = 0.2m/s^2`

*So the acceleration of the train is `0.2m/s^2` .*
