1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An object starts from rest with an acceleration of 2.0 m/s2 for 3.0 seconds. It then reduces its acceleration to 1.0 m/s2 for 5.0 additional seconds. The total distance covered is 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I've tried using the formula of velocity = acceleration * time but after getting the velocity I was stuck and couldn't go further in getting the solution.
