Question

A small block is released from rest at the top of a frictionless incline. The block travels a distance 0.692 m in the first second after it is released. How far does it travel in the next second?

Step 1

**Given information:**

Distance travelled by the block in the first second (S_{1}) = 0.692 m

Initial velocity (u) = 0 m/s

Let the acceleration of the block be “a”

Step 2

Consider the equation:

Step 3

The distance travelled by the body in the next second is given by:

S2 = S0-2 – S1

Where S0-2 is distance travelled by t...
