900 m/s velocity=meters/sec v=4500/5=900

If in 16.8 second the boat travels 149m then to know how long it travels in 1 second you devide 149 meters by 16.8. This gives you 8.86904761904761904761904761904761... but since it is after all a boat in water and so many factors affect it the answer does not need to be this accurate... 8.86 meters per second is good enough...

4 meters/2 seconds = 2 meters/second.

363m

40 meters/10 seconds = 4 meters per second.

One example problem of speed and velocity would be 'What is the speed of a sailboat traveling 100 meters in 180 seconds?' You can use a calculator to solve these types of problems.

900 m/s velocity=meters/sec v=4500/5=900

Distance = Velocity*Time = 25.5*85 metres = 2167.5 metres.

A rocket that travels 9000 meters in 12.12 seconds moves at 742.5742 meters/second which is approx 1660 mph

Acceleration occurs when velocity changes over time. The formula for it is as follows: a = (Vf - Vi) / t a: acceleration (meters/seconds2) Vf: Final velocity (meters/seconds) Vi: Initial Velocity (meters/seconds) t: Time (seconds)

4 meters/2 seconds = 2 meters/second.

1 kilometer is equal to 1000 meters. 4.1 minutes is equal to 246 seconds. Velocity would equal 1000 meters divided by 246 seconds. So the answer is 4.065 meters per second West.
