    Figure shows the graphical variation of displacement with time for the case of a particle moving along a straight line. The accelerations of the particle during the intervals O A comma A B comma B C and C D are respectively

    The portion O A of the graphs is convex upward. It represents negative acceleration. The portion A B represents negative acceleration. The portion A B represents that x is not changing with time. Clearly, it is a case of zero acceleration. The portion B C of the graph is concave upward. It represents positive acceleration. The portion C D is a straight line sloping upward to the right. It represents uniform velocity and hence acceleration is zero

    A stone dropped from a building of height h and it reaches after t seconds on earth. From the same building if two stones are thrown (one upwards and other downwards) with the same velocity u and they reach the earth surface after t subscript 1 end subscript and t subscript 2 end subscript seconds respectively, then

    If a stone is dropped from height h then
    h equals fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t to the power of 2 end exponent(i)
    if a stone is thrown upward with velocity u then
    h equals negative u blank t subscript 1 end subscript plus fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t subscript 1 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript(ii)
    If a stone is thrown downward with velocity u then
    h equals u t subscript 2 end subscript plus fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t subscript 2 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript(iii)
    From (i) (ii) and (iii) we get
    negative u t subscript 1 end subscript plus fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t subscript 1 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript equals fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t to the power of 2 end exponent(iv)
    u t subscript 2 end subscript plus fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t subscript 2 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript equals fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g t to the power of 2 end exponent(v)
    Dividing (iv) and (v) we get
    therefore fraction numerator negative u t subscript 1 end subscript over denominator u t subscript 2 end subscript end fraction equals fraction numerator fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g left parenthesis t to the power of 2 end exponent minus t subscript 1 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript right parenthesis over denominator fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction g left parenthesis t to the power of 2 end exponent minus t subscript 2 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript right parenthesis end fraction
    Or negative fraction numerator t subscript 1 end subscript over denominator t subscript 2 end subscript end fraction equals fraction numerator t to the power of 2 end exponent minus t subscript 1 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript over denominator t to the power of 2 end exponent minus t subscript 2 end subscript superscript 2 end superscript end fraction
    By solvingblank t equals square root of t subscript 1 end subscript t subscript 2 end subscript end root
