Answer to Question #34515 in Mechanics | Relativity for Aniruddh

Question #34515
The three-toed sloth is the slowest moving land mammal. On the ground, the sloth moves at an average speed of 0.038 m/s, considerably slower than the giant tortoise, which walks at 0.078 m/s. After 10 minutes of walking, how much further would the tortoise have gone relative to the sloth?
Expert's answer
10 minutes is 600 seconds.
Difference in velocities is 0.078 m/s - 0.038 m/s = 0.04 m/s
Hence, difference in distance will be


600 * 0.04 = 24 m


tortoise has gone 24 m from sloth
