Uniform acceleration problem

  1. Sep 16, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A body starts from rest along the straight line with uniform acceleration .it covers a distance of 150 m during 8th second of its motion calculate acceralation of body

    2. Relevant equations

    s= ut+1/2 at^2

    3. The attempt at a solution

    u = 0 ;
    a = (2*150)/64 = 4.68m/s^2;
    Is this right or wrong?please asnwer me as i am posting on behalf of my sister.

    That's it.
    You can verify it by drawing the v-t diagram... the area is the displacement, the slope is the acceleration.
