Speed Practice

Calculate the average velocity of a moving object, given the object's change in position and time.

For problems with calculations use UDRSS:
  ◻ Units       ◻Data       ◻Relationship       ◻ Substitution       ◻Solution

  1. What is the speed of a sailboat that traveled 100 meters in 120 seconds? 

  2. What is the speed of a baseball that travels 49 meters in 2.4 seconds? 

  3. If a projectile flies north 387 meters in 5.8 seconds, what is its velocity? 

  4. Why did problem 3 ask for velocity when problems 1 and 2 asked for speed?
