Answer to Question #31801 in Mechanics | Relativity for John Coats
In 1954 the English runner Roger Bannister broke the four-minute barrier for the mile with a time of 3:59.4 s (3 min and 59.4s). In 1999 the Moroccan runner Hicham el-Guerrouj set a record of 3:43.13 s for the mile. If these two runners had run in the same race, each running the entire race at the average speed that earned him a place in the record books, el-Guerrouj would have won by how many meters?
