A car acceleration from rest at a constant rate $\alpha$ for some time after which it decelerates at a constant rate $\beta$ to come to rest. If t is the total time elapsed , then the maximum velocity attained by the car is

$\begin{array}{1 1} \alpha \beta t \\ \large\frac{t}{\alpha \beta } \\ \large\frac{\alpha \beta t}{\alpha+ beta} \\\large\frac{\alpha+ \beta t}{\alpha \beta}\end{array} $

Answer : $ \large\frac{\alpha \beta t}{\alpha+ \beta}$
$V=0+\alpha t_1$
Similarity, $t_2=\large\frac{V}{\beta}$
or $t_1+t_2= \large\frac{V}{\alpha} +\frac{V}{\beta}$
$\qquad= \large\frac{\alpha \beta t}{\alpha+ \beta}$
