If April swam 50 M North then swam 20 M South back then her velocity would be 16.66. This is a math problem.

### April moves from a position 5 m north of her front door to a new position that is 3 m south of her front door if this movement takes her 4 seconds what is her velocity?

Displacement: 8 m south Time: 4 seconds Therefore velocity = 2 metres per second Southwards.

### Tom walked 450 m south He then turned and walked 150 m to the north in 600 seconds What was his velocity?

He walked 600m in 600 seconds so his velocity is 1m/s (one metre per second)

### Mai jogs 800 m north and then turns and jogs 200 m back to the south What is her velocity if it takes her 400 seconds?

1.5 m.s north thanks to m.e.h :D

### Does the sun go north or south in April?

During April, the sun is moving from south to north, heading north.

### A car moves from a position 50 m south of the library to a new position 250 m north of the library This movement takes 15 seconds What is the velocity of the car?

The displacement of the car is 200 m (250 m north - 50 m south). The time taken is 15 seconds. Therefore, the velocity of the car is 200 m divided by 15 seconds, which equals 13.33 m/s north.

20 m/s north

### What is the velocity of someone going north on main street for 1800 m then south on main street for 2200 m and the total time is 400 seconds?

The person travels a total of 4000 m in 400 seconds, so their average speed is 10m/s. However velocity is a vector quantity, and is defined as displacement/time. The total displacement is only 400 m, so the average velocity is just 1m/s.

5 m/s south

### Is 300kmh north the same velocity as 300kmh south?

No. Velocity is described as a speed in a certain direction. Since they are in different directions, they are different velocities.

### Can you have a negative velocity followed by south?

What I mean is can you have a negative velocity followed by "south". (i.e. -7.5 m/s south) or would the velocity be 7.5 m/s south? My opinion is that the negative sign is not necessary since south is already "negative" so you would be canceling out the negative if you have the sign making it 7.5 m/s north.
