Answer to Question #34951 in Mechanics | Relativity for Katie
A football coach starts at the 35 yard line and walks to the 15 yard line. He turns around and walks to the 40 yard line. He turns around again and walks back to the 0 yard line. He turns around once more and walks back to the 25 yard line, thus completing his 10 minutes of pacing. My question is what is the average speed? I am struggling with distance and displacement a lot and I cannot seem to solve this, even though I have been on it for a while today now.
Dear visitor Unfortunately, the statement of your question is a bit confusing. Additional physical values (for example the velocities or time of walk at the indidvidual parts of the path) in the statement is missing. Please give us the details so we could help you.
