Solution :-

Given, the initial velocity (u) of the train = 0m.s-1 (at rest)

Terminal velocity (v) of the train = 40km/hour = 11.11 m.s-1

Time interval, t = 10 minutes = 600 s.

The acceleration of the train is given by a \(= \frac{v-u}{t}\) \( =\frac{11.11\,m.s^{-1}-0}{600s}\) \( =0.0185\,m.s^{2}\)
