1. If Steve throws the football 50 meters in 3 seconds, what is the average speed (velocity) of the football?

2. If it takes Ashley 3 seconds to run from the batters box to first base at an average speed (velocity) of 6.5 meters per second, what is the distance she covers in that time?

3. Bart ran 5000 meters from the cops and an average speed (velocity) of 6 meters/second before he got caught. How long did he run?

4. If Justin races his Chevy S-10 down Highway 37 for 2560 meters in 60 seconds, what is his average speed (velocity)?

5. Mike rides his motorcycle at an average speed (velocity) of 20 meters/second for 500 seconds, how far did he ride?

6. Sarah backstrokes at an average speed of 8 meters per second, how long will it take her to complete the race of 200 meters length?

7. Lauren’s SUV was detected exceeding the posted speed limit of 60 kilometers per hour, how many kilometers per hour would she have been traveling over the limit if she had covered the a distance of 10 kilometers in 5 minutes?

8. Tina’s calculations of the tarantula found that the spider was able to cover 20 centimeters in 5 seconds, what was the average speed of the spider?

9. Thirty years ago, police would check a highway for speeders by sending a helicopter up in the air and observing the time it would take for a car to travel between two wide lines placed 1/10th of a mile apart. On one occasion, a car was observed to take 7.2 seconds to travel this distance. a. How much time did it take the car to travel the distance in hours?

b. What is the speed of the car in miles per hour?

10. The fastest trains are magnetically levitated above the rails to avoid friction (and are therefore called MagLev trains…cool, huh?). The fastest trains travel about 155 miles in a half an hour. What is their average speed in miles/hour?

Tennis ball and racket ball comparison
Problem: Find the speed of the tennis ball and the racket ball to determine which one travels faster.
Hypothesis: I believe that the racket ball will have a faster average speed than the tennis ball for both distances because the racket ball is bouncy.
Materials:
*Tennis ball *30yards of space
*Racket ball *Set of stairs
*Stop watch *measuring tape

...Assignment 1
Question 1
The cash drawer at the local market has room for $20 bills, $10 bills, $5 bills, $1 bills,
quarters ($0.25), dimes ($0.10), nickels ($0.05), and pennies ($0.01). Create a worksheet
that allows a person to enter in how many of each type of bills and coins are in the cash
drawer and calculates the total value of the money in the drawer. So for example, if the
drawer contains two $5 bills and three quarters, there would be $10.75 in the drawer.
Question 2...

...-------------------------------------------------
SpeedSpeed is defined as a measure of the distance an object travels in a given length of time.
The average speed of an object can be determined from the equation below:
Thus, if a car travels 100 meters in 5 seconds its average speed can be calculated as;
Average speed = 100/5 = 20 meters per second
Average speed is used to give the...

...Measuring the Speed of Sound and Air using a Pulse-Echo Technique
Purpose
To determine the speed of sound in air using the pulse-echo experiment procedure, and comparing it to the predicted speed of sound in air using the measured air temperature of the classroom.
Hypothesis
I believe that the speed of sound it the air will be close to that of the predicted value. According to our predicted value, we should expect the...

...with a constant speed. After 2 hours there is a change in wind direction that reduces his speed by 4 mph. The entire distance he travels was 48 miles and the time for the entire distance was 5 hours. What was the average speed of the cyclist in the first two hours?
Using dB as the distance travelled before the change of wind took place and dA as the distance travelled after the change of wind, we get:
