    A particle of mass 10kg, moving in a straight line, starts at rest from a point A under the action of a force that decreases uniformly from 20N to zero in 20 secs. It then travels with a constant speed for a further 20s, and finally moves under the action of an opposing force of 40N until it comes to rest at B. Find the maximum speed attained and the distance travelled.
