# A classical mechanics problem by Rishabh Tiwari

A particle is moving along $$x$$-axis with a constant acceleration of $$-2 \text{ ms}^{-2}$$. The particle leaves the origin with a velocity of $$5 \text{ ms}^{-1}$$. Determine the distance (in $$\text{m}$$) travelled by the particle during the third second of its motion.
