Chapter 2, Problem 7 Question Problem The average velocity , the time interval , and the displacement are connected by the equation . Re-arrange. (a) Let be the distance covered before rain started, and let be the velocity. Find the time taken to cover this distance. Substitute 130 km for and for . Now, we have to find the time interval for the journey during the rainfall. Express 20 minutes in hours. Therefore, 3 hours and 20 minutes is equivalent to 3.33 hours. Since the total time taken for the journey is 3.33 hours, the time interval for the journey during the rain can be calculated by subtracting the time taken to cover the 130 km from the total time. Find . Let represent the distance covered during the rain. The distance between the school and
