Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : 96 m

The correct answer is 96 m

  • Given, the initial velocity of the boat = 0 m/s
    • Acceleration of the boat = 3 m/s2
    • Time period = 8s
    • As per the second motion equation, s = ut + 1/2 at2
    • Therefore, the total distance traveled by boat in 8 seconds = 0 + 1/2 [(3) × (8)2]
    • s = 96 meters
    • Therefore, the motorboat travels a distance of 96 meters in a time frame of 8 seconds.

​​

  • There are three equations of motion that can be used to derive components such as displacement(s), velocity (initial and final), time(t) and acceleration(a).
  • The following are the three equation of motion:
    • First Equation of Motion: v = u + at
    • Second Equation of Motion: s = ut + 1/2(at2)
    • Third Equation of Motion: v= u+ 2as
