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.

Velocity is a vector quantity that includes both speed and direction. To calculate the velocity of Rob on a skateboard, we need to know the distance he traveled in meters and the direction of his motion. If Rob travels 10 meters in 3 seconds, the velocity would be 10 meters/3 seconds = 3.33 m/s (assuming no change in direction).

The velocity of the sailboat is 8.85 m/s. This is calculated by dividing the distance traveled (149 m) by the time taken (16.8 s).

3.00 m/s

The student's velocity is 4 meters per second. Velocity is calculated by dividing the distance traveled by the time taken. In this case, 20 meters divided by 5 seconds equals 4 meters per second.

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

An example problem involving speed is calculating the average speed of a car that travels 100 miles in 2 hours. An example problem involving velocity is determining the velocity of a ball thrown upward with an initial velocity of 20 m/s at a height of 40 meters above the ground.

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)
