Unformatted text preview: armington (kma786) hw0127 fiete (57165) 1 This printout should have 10 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A car travels along a straight stretch of road. It proceeds for 16 . 2 mi at 56 mi / h, then 20 . 8 mi at 44 mi / h, and finally 49 . 8 mi at 34 . 7 mi / h. What is the cars average velocity during the entire trip? Correct answer: 39 . 5053 mi / h. Explanation: Let : d A = 16 . 2 mi , v A = 56 mi / h , d B = 20 . 8 mi , v B = 44 mi / h , d C = 49 . 8 mi , and v C = 34 . 7 mi / h . The total time the car spent on the road is t = d A v A + d B v B + d C v C = 16 . 2 mi 56 mi / h + 20 . 8 mi 44 mi / h + 49 . 8 mi 34 . 7 mi / h = 2 . 19717 h , so the average velocity is v = d t = d A + d B + d C t = 16 . 2 mi + 20 . 8 mi + 49 . 8 mi 2 . 19717 h = 39 . 5053 mi / h . 002 10.0 points A car makes a 244 km trip at an average speed of 40 . 2 km / h. A second car starting 1 h later arrives at their mutual destination at the same time. What was the average speed of the second car for the period that it was in motion? Correct answer: 48 . 1295 km / h. Explanation: Let : d = 244 km , v = 40 . 2 km / h , and t = 1 h . Average velocity is v = d t . t = t 1 t 2 = d v 1 d v 2 d v 2 = d v 1 t v 2 d = 1 d v 1 t v 1 v 1 v 2 = d v 1 d v 1 t = (244 km)(40 . 2 km / h) 244 km (40 . 2 km / h)(1 h) = 48 . 1295 km / h . 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A runner is jogging at a steady 3 . 1 km / hr....
