**Problem 2:** An object is traveling with constant
acceleration of 10 m/s. How much distance will it travel in 3^{rd}
second of its journey?

**Solution**

Given data V_{i} = 0 m/s t = 1 sec (3^{rd}
second) a = 10 ms^{-2}

Required Distance covered in 3^{rd}
second

Strategy: In order to find the distance travelled in 3^{rd} second, we should know what is the velocity at the start of 3^{rd} second? Remember before the start of second 3, the object has traveled for 2 second and has attained some velocity. This gives us the information that the final velocity at the end of second 2 will be the initial velocity at the start of second 3. The acceleration is given to be constant.
