# Kinematic of a particle moving in a straight line watch

1. A particle P is moving on the axis with constant deceleration 1 m/s². At time t=0s, passes through the origin O with the velocity of 14 m/s² in the positive direction. The point lies on the axis and OA=22.5 m. Find
(a) the difference between the times when P passes through
(b) the total distance travelled by P during the interval between these time

Use SUVAT, deceleration has units m/s^-2 not velocity.
