After 5 seconds the object will have reached a speed of:

#### Explanation:

Since the speed goes up from 0 to 10 m/s at a constant rate, the **average** speed in those 5 seconds will be:

Since distance=(average speed) times (time):

Distance

I'm afraid that's not one of the choices you had... but I'm pretty sure it's correct.
