______________ is the distance traveled during a specific unit of time.

# Tag: distance

An object’s speed is the distance it travels _____ the amount of time it takes.

Why did the American leaders believe that US territories were safe from Japanese attack? They had negotiated an agreement for Japan’s withdrawal from China. They believed the embargo had made Japan too weak to attack. They thought the distance between the United States and Japan was too great. They expected Japan to attack Germany next.

The table shows the relationship between time spent running and distance traveled in which type of model best describes the relationship

True or false: If you know the Pythagorean theorem, then you can always finds the distance between two points in the plain.

Work has the greatest value when the force done is

parallel to the direction of motion. In this case, the work done in pulling the

wagon to the corner is greater than the amount of work done in pulling the

wagon back to the starting point. This is because an angle of 30 degrees is

applied when pulling it back. The formula for work when angle is applied is:

Wx = W cos θ

Where in this case, θ = 30

Therefore,

the answer to this is letter:

**C) he does less work coming back because the force moving
the wagon is only 50cos30**

John goes for a run. From his house, he jogs north for exactly 5.0 min at an average speed of 8.0 km/h. He continues north at a speed of 12.0 km/h for the next 30.0 min. He then turns around and jogs south at a speed of 15.0 km/h for 15.0 min. Then he jogs south for another 20.0 min at 8.0 km/h. He walks the rest of the way home. Which is the correct plot of total distance as a function of time for John’s jog?

Find the distance between point A (5,3) and point B (1,0) on a graph using the Pythagorean theorem

Answer:

Rate of movement of snail, s = 0.25 meters per hour

Explanation:

It is given that,

Distance covered by snail, d = 0.5 m

The snail moved this distance in 2 hours

Since, 1 hour = 3600 seconds

So, 2 hour = 7200 seconds

We have to find the rate of movement of snail i.e. s

So,

s = 0.000069 m/s

Converting m/s to m/h

So, s = 0.248 m/h

or s = 0.25 meters per hour

Hence, the correct option is (d)

If you ran 15 km/h for 20 min, how much distance would you cover?

To answer this problem, we will use the formula of

hypotenuse:

c^2 = a^2 + b^2

Where,

c = total distance traveled / displacement = 119 miles

a = distance traveled north = 5 hours * x mph = 5 x

b = distance traveled west = 4 hours * (x + 5) mph = 4 (x

+ 5)

Substituting to the equation:

119^2 = (5 x)^2 + [4(x + 5)]^2

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 (x + 5)^2

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 (x^2 + 10 x + 25)

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 x^2 + 160 x + 400

0 = 41 x^2 + 160 x – 13,761

x =[ – b ± sqrt (b^2 – 4ac)]/ 2a

x = [- 160 ± sqrt (160^2 – 4 * 41 * (– 13,761))] / 2 * 41

x = – 1.95 ± 18.42

x = -20.37 , 16.47

Since speed cannot be negative, therefore x = 16.47

Therefore the speed of the ship travelling west is:

**x +

v = 2*pi*R/T,

you have R in m and T is days, which multiplied by 86,400 s/day gives T in seconds.

Then v = 2*pi*3.84*10^8/(27.3*86,400) = 1,022.9 m/s ~ 1 km/s (about 3 times the speed of sound 🙂

For the Earth around the Sun, it would be v = 2*pi*149.5*10^9/(365*86,400)~ 29.8 km/s!

I know it’s not in the problem, but it’s interesting to know how fast the Earth moves around the Sun! And yet we do not feel it (that’s one of the reasons some ancient people thought crazy the Earth not being at the center, there would be such strong winds!)

First, draw the triangle of the ladder, with the fence and the building.

There are two similar right triangles: the one from the ground to the fence, and the one from the ground to the building. Let’s call L the length of the ladder and l, the length of the ladder from the ground to the fence, then:

L/(x+d) = l/x, where x is the horizontal distance from the point where the ladder touches the ground to the base of the fence and ‘d’ is the distance between the fence and the building (d=5 ft).

L = (x+d)/x*l, now l = sqrt( x^2+h^2), where h is the height of the fence (h=6 ft).

Then, one usually squares it, because the point where the maximum or minimum is attained is the same when optimizing a distance.

So that, one could look for the minimum of L^2 = (x+d)^2/x^2*(x^2+h^2), where d = 5 ft, and h = 6ft.

What I don;t like, is that L’ = dL/dx is a bit lengthy to calculate and then you have to set it = 0. I think all this is right, but I expected a somewhat simpler expression, unless you’re doing AP or similar.
