The function s(t) = ut + 1/2 gt^2 represents the distance traveled s meters in time t seconds when the initial velocity is u m/s and acceleration is g m/s^2. What is the distance traveled in 5 seconds, if the initial velocity is zero and acceleration is 10 m/s^2?

a) 1000 m
b) 500 m
c) 250 m
d) 125 m
