1. 60 m/s.

2. 3600 m.

Explanation:

The following data were obtained from the question:

Initial velocity (u) = 0

Acceleration (a) = 0.5 m/s²

Time (t) = 2 mins

Final Velocity (v) =?

Distance travelled (s) =?

1. Determination of the velocity at the end of 2 minutes.

Initial velocity (u) = 0

Acceleration (a) = 0.5 m/s²

Time (t) = 2 mins = 2 x 60 = 120 secs

Final Velocity (v) =?

v = u + at

v = 0 + (0.5 x 120)

v = 60 m/s

Therefore, the velocity at the end of 2 minutes is 60 m/s.

2. Determination of the distance travelled.

Initial velocity (u) = 0

Acceleration (a) = 0.5 m/s²

Final velocity (v) = 60 m/s

Distance travelled (s) =..?

v² = u² + 2as

60² = 0 + 2 x 0.5 x s

3600 = 1 x s

s = 3600 m

Therefore, the distance travelled is 3600 m.
