First note that there are 1.0936133 yards in a metre. Therefore, to convert from metres into yards we have to multiply by 1.0936133. In this case you do: 120x1.0936133 = 131.233596 Thus, in 120 metres, there are 131 yards

Completely ignore the first train.The second train passes the pole in 8sec.In this 8 seconds the train drove 120 meters.So the train has a speed of 15meters per second (120/8=15).Answer: 15 (meters / second) = 54 km/h

heres the average 2.2 seconds

First, convert kilometres per hour to metres per hour. There are 1000 metres in one kilometre, therefore, 3.6 kilometres per hour is equal to 3.6 x 1000 = 3600 metres per hour. Next, convert metres per hour to metres per second. There are 3600 seconds in one hour. Therefore, 3600 metres per hour is equal to 3600/3600 = 1 metre per second.

There are no first five because there is really no first: you can always use a smaller unit. In terms of reasonably well known prefices, the answer could be: yoctometre = 10-24 metres zeptometre = 10-21 metres attometre = 10-18 metres femtometre = 10-15 metres picometre = 10-12 metres. But, the first could be defined as the Planck length = 1.616199*10-35 metres. This is the smallest measurable distance.

First we must classify "It". According to google.com search engine, the first logical most used word in the English language is "you". So assuming you are "it", and you are an average person who can walk at 5 km/h, on a level surface you will walk 6.9 metres. Now we must decide the angle of climb. Let's say you're walking on a rural road where a slope could be approximately 18 degrees. Your average walking speed may be reduced to around 4 km/h, meaning you travel 5.6 metres in 5 seconds. So we're finally ready to solve the height after 5 seconds. Setting up the trigonometric function, we can see that Sin(18 degrees) = (x / 5.6) Solving for x gives us 1.73 m. So after 5 seconds, it has reached a height of 1.73 m vertically.
