The velocity of a body in motion in straight line with the uniform acceleration is given as v = 2t - 5. The net magnitude of displacement made by the body from t = 0  to t = 3 is

2. 3 m
3. 5 m
4. 2 m

Correct Answer - Option 1 : 6 m

Concept:

Displacement: The net change in position is called displacement.

Velocity: It the rate of change of displacement.

$v = \frac{dx}{dt}$

Writing this equation in another way.

dx = v.dt

And if do integration both side, we will get

$\int dx =\int_{t_1}^{t_2} v.dt$

Calculation:

Given velocity v = 2t - 5

So, the displacement from t = 0 to t = 3 second is given as

$x =\int_{0}^{3} (2t -5).dt$

⇒ $x = \left [ 2\frac{t^2}{2} \right ]_{0}^{3} - \left [ 5t \right ]_{0}^{3}$

⇒ x = 3 2 - 5 × 3 = - 6 m

So, displacement is - 6 m

The magnitude of displacement is 6 m.
