Uncertainty of measurements

  1. Feb 8, 2017 #1
    a) A locomotive (train) starts from rest at a locomotive yard and accelerates at a rate of 1.80 m s-2 for 12.0 s. It then runs at constant speed for 50.0 s and slows down at a rate of 3.50 m s-2 until it stops at the next station. Determine the total distance covered by the train.
