A motorboat starting from rest on a lake acceleration line at a constant rate of 3.0 m//s^(2) for 8.0 s. How far does the boat travel during this time ?

Here, " " Distance travelled, s = ? " " (To be calculated)
" " Initial speed, u = 0
" " Time, t = 8.0 s
And " " Acceleration, a = 3.0 m s^(-2)
Now, " "s=ut + (1)/(2) at^(2)
So, " "s= 0xx8.0 + (1)/(2)xx3xx(8.0)^(2)
" "s = 0+(1)/(2)xx3xx64
" "s = 96 m
Thus, the boat travels a distance of 96 metres.
