    Answer:

    14.4 m

    The distance covered by the body is 14.4 m.

    Solution,

    Initial velocity(u)= 0 m/s( according to Question, the body starts from rest.thats why initial velocity(u) becomes zero.

    Acceleration (a)= 0.2 m/s

    Time (t):

     \frac{1}{5} minute =  \frac{1}{5 }  \times 60 \: seconds

     = 12 \: seconds

    Now,

    Applying third equations of motion:

    s = ut +  \frac{1}{2} a {t}^{2}  \\ s = 0 \times 12 +  \frac{1}{2}  \times 0.2 \times  {(12)}^{2}  \\s = 0 + 14.4 \\ s = 14.4 \: metre

    Thus, the distance covered by the body is 14.4 metre.

    Further more information:

    Application of equation of motion in different situation:

    • When a certain object comes in motion from rest, in the case, initial velocity(u)= 0 m/s
    • When a moving object comes in rest,in the case, final velocity(v)= 0 m/s
    • If the object is moving with uniform velocity, in the case, (u=v)
    • If any object is thrown vertically upward, in the case, acceleration (a)= -g
    • When an object is falling from certain height, in the case, u= 0 m/s
    • When an object is thrown vertically upwards in the case, final velocity at maximum height becomes 0.
