Speed calculations are based on distance and time.
Velocity must have a direction.
Speed can be measured in meters per second.
Velocity can be measured in meters per second.
A person riding a bike travels 214 meters in 58 seconds. Calculate the person's velocity.
A train maintains a constant velocity of 16.0 meters per second. Calculate the distance the train has traveled after 26.0 seconds.
A speedboat maintains a constant velocity of 12.00 meters per second. Calculate the time it will take for the boat to travel 400.00 meters.
A car maintains an constant velocity of 18.0 meters per second. Calculate the distance the car has traveled after 1.50 minutes. (Be careful to watch the units!)
A taxi maintains a constant velocity of 19.0 meters per second. Calculate the time it takes to travel 2.0 kilometers. (Be careful to watch the units!)
An airplane maintaining a constant velocity of 30.0 meters per second encounters a tailwind (from behind) of 15 meters per second. Assuming the pilot takes no action to speed up or slow down the plane, calculate the plane's new resultant velocity.
A golf ball has a constant velocity of 21 meters per second traveling North. It encounters a strong 12 m/s wind from the west. Calculate the ball's new resultant velocity. (You will need graph paper or the Pythagorean Theorem!)
Take this test to find out how much you know about speed and velocity and how good you are at those differing topics. The quiz is asked in an easy to understand language in other to allow you to understand the questions properly....
