1. A particle travels in a straight line with uniform acceleration, passing through 3 points; A, B and C in that order at times t=0, t=2 and t=5 respectively. If BC=30m and the speed of the particle when at B is 7ms-1, find the acceleration of the particle and its speed when at A

2. Use SUVAT equations.

Well, the first is reasonably simple, a standard use of - I'll leave you to do that.
The second, however, is a little more complicated - you need to consider for some convenient .

What if , where the subscript means the time at that point?
