Homework Help: Find the maximum velocity.

  1. Jan 7, 2017 #1
    A train travels a distance of 1,2 km between two stations with an average velocity of 43.2 km/h. During it's motion, at the time t1=40s it moved accelerated, then at time t2 it moved uniformly, then at t3=40s it moved uniformly slowed. Find the maximum velocity of the train.
    The acceleration during the slowed motion is equal in modulus to the acceleration during the accelerated motion.

    distance=1,2 km
    average velocity=43.2 km/h
    |a3|= a1

    Hopefully it makes sense.
