that distance in 1.4 minutes. What was his velocity?

Write your answer as a whole number.

meters per minute down the road

Answer:

250 m/min down the road

Explanation:

Velocity is equivalent to speed but it considers the direction of the object. Velocity is also calculated by dividing the distance travelled by time. Therefore, [tex]v=\frac {d}{t}[/tex] where d and t are distance and time respectively. Given that d is given as 350 m and t is 1.4 s then by substitution [tex]v=\frac {350}{1.4}=250 m/min[/tex] and the direction is down the road.

Velocity is 250 m/min down the road
