1. Car overtaking
A passenger car travels at a speed of 30 m/s, and before it travels freight truck that drives at a constant speed of 10 m/s. Within 30 meters of the truck, the driver of the car finds out that the truck can not overtake. That's why it starts braking with a
2. Bob traveled
Bob traveled 20 meters to Dave's house. He arrived in 3 minutes. What was his average speed for the trip.
3. Bomber

4. Cars 2
Opava is 360 km distance from Prešov. At 8:00 hour two cars started against each other from this cities at average speeds 88 km/h and 121 km/h. At what hour its will meet and what distance its travel if car started from Prešov is faster?
5. Gravitation
From the top of the 80m high tower, the body is thrown horizontally with an initial speed of 15 m/s. At what time and at what distance from the foot of the tower does the body hit the horizontal surface of the Earth? (use g = 10 ms-2)

Two cities along the river are 100 km apart. The powerboat downstream runs for 4 hours, upstream for 10 hours. Determines the river's current speed.
13. Two vans
At 8:30 a. M. , two vans leave at a parking area. They travel in opposite directions: one van travels at 48 km/h and the other at 62 km/h. At what time will the cars be 550 km apart?
