7. The Voyager 1 space probe was launched in the 1970’s and is now the furthest

man-made object from earth – it has actually left the solar system. At its current speed it

could travel across the US, a distance of about 4500 km in 265 seconds (a little less

than 5 minutes!) What is its average speed in kilometers per second?

PLEASE HELP I NEED THE FORMULA AND ANSWER THANK YOU!!

Answer:v = 16.98 km/s

Explanation:Given that,

Distance, d = 4500 km

Time, t = 265 s

We need to find its average speed. The total distance covered divided by total time taken is called average speed of an object. So,

So, the average speed is 16.98 km/s.
