It's 60 divided by 5, Which is 12m/s east. Velocity is a vector for speed, since velocity has a direction and speed does not. Velocity has the SI units of meters per second. So you take the meters and divide by how many seconds to get your velocity.

The velocity of a car changes from 10 ms to the east to 30 ms to the east in 4 seconds What is the acceleration of the car?

How many rat kangaroos are there?

Rat kangaroos are members of the Potoroidae family, which belong to the group known as Kangaroos, and are completely different to the kangaroo rats of North America. The term "bettong" and/or "potoroo" are sometimes used interchangeably with the term "rat-kangaroo". Thus, there can be considered to be either one of two surviving species of rat-kangaroos:Rufous Rat-Kangaroo, also known as the Rufous Bettong or WoylieMusky Rat-KangarooThe Desert rat-kangaroo (also known as the Buff-nosed Rat-kangaroo or the Plains Rat-kangaroo) was another species. The last confirmed record of the Desert rat-kangaroo was in 1935 near Ooroowilanie, east of Lake Eyre, but some scientists believe that, as it is/was a very elusive creature it could still exist in the remote desert.

What is the kangaroo's velocity if he hops 60 miles to the east in 5 seconds?

60 miles in 5 seconds equals 12 miles per second. 12 x 60 =720 miles per minute. 720 miles per minute x 60 minutes per hour = 43,200 miles per hour, which is not physically possible for any living creature (mach 56).
