Hi , hello adios i'm new to these forums and require help to solve this Queston.

Find the distance covered by a body which initially starts from rest and then accelerates with 6 m/s^2 for 3 minutes.

Welcome to Physics Forums
Formula is
S=ut+1/2at2
Where s is distance
u is initial speed
t is time
a is acceleration

So S=0*180+1/2*6*180
=97200m

This is a simple question.Have you tried it for yourself?

If the OP asked you to give him \$100, would you have forked over the cash?
