- Homework Statement:
- part b. find the distance travelled in the first ##50## seconds

- Relevant Equations:
- kinematics

now this is my approach,

**my interest in on part b**

distance travelled= area under the graph between time ##t=0## and ##t=50##,

area = ##0.5(40+20)10+ (20 × 40) + 0.5(40+20)10+ 0.5×10×20##

Area= ##300+800+300+100=1500m##

now textbook says i am wrong, where have i made a mistake?
