The sprinter runs 22.5 miles per hour. The sprinter covers 110 yards in 10 seconds. That's 110 yards per 10 seconds. (It's also 11 yards per second.) We need to convert the 110 yards/10 seconds into miles per (one) hour, or miles/hour. So let's do it. Here are the conversion factors: 1 mile = 1760 yards 1 minute = 60 seconds 1 hour = 60 minutes (11 yd/sec)(60 sec/min)(60 min/hr)(mile/1760 yd) = 11 x 60 x 60 x 1/1760 = 22.5 miles/hour

100 miles/50 seconds= 2 miles per second average speed

100 yards in 10 seconds 20.45 miles per hour.

15 miles in 60 minutes = 15 miles in 3600 minutes = 15 miles in 216000 seconds = 1 mile in 14400 seconds = 5280 feet in 14400 seconds = 63360 inches in 14400 seconds = 4.4 inches in one second = 88 inches in 20 seconds, or 7 feet-4 inches.

100 yards/6.7 seconds = 30.5292 miles per hour (rounded)

Wolf. Cheetahs are sprinters, not distance runners.

I have seen them with over 400,000 miles with only minimal repairs

A common misconception is that cheetahs can run fast speeds for miles. This is incorrect for the most part. Most Cheetahs are sprinters, meaning they can only run fast for a short period. However, cheetahs can clear 3000 feet in thirty seconds before they start to slow. The top cheetahs have been clocked at 91 miles per hour, 8080 feet per minute. Almost a mile and a half a minute. But the average cheetah moves at 70 miles an hour, and can achieve such in 3 seconds...

60,000 miles

A sprinter's AVERAGE SPEED is calculated by taking the total distance traveled (usually in meters) and dividing that by the total time taken (usually to the nearest 1/100th of a second). Therefore if a sprinter ran the 100 meter dash in 9.69 seconds his AVERAGE SPEED would be 100m / 9.69 seconds or 10.32 meters / second. To convert meters / second to kilometers / hour: multiply meters / second by 3.6. Therefore 10.32 m/s = 37.15 km/hr. To convert km/hr into miles/hr (mph) multiply by .62. Therefore 37.15 km/hr = 23.03 mph. So you see Usain Bolt isn't even fast enough to get a speeding ticket in a 25mph residential neighborhood!

Seconds are a measure of time and miles are a measure of distance. There is no answer.
