Practice questions on motion

Question 12
Two cars A and B race each other. The Car A ran for 2 min at a speed of 7.5 km/h, slept for 56 min and again ran for 2 min at a speed of 7.5 km/h. find the average speed of the car A in the race.
Question 13
Anand leaves his house at 8.30 a.m. for his school. The school is 2 km away and classes start at 9.00 a.m. If he walks at a speed of 3 km/h for the first kilometer, at what speed should he walk the second kilometer to reach just in time?
Question 14
An object moves along a straight line with an acceleration of 2 m/s2. If its initial speed is 10 m/s, what will be its speed 2 s later? Question 15
A bullet hits a Sand box with a velocity of 20 m/s and penetrates it up to a distance of 6 cm. Find the deceleration of the bullet in the sand box. Question 16
