# Harmonic mean + motion problems - examples

- Water current speed.

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. - Express train

International express train drove from Kosice to Teplice. In the first 279 km, the track was repaired, and therefore it was moving at a speed of 10km/h less than it was scheduled to drive. The rest of the 465 km trip has increased the speed by 8 km/h than. - Cyclist

Cyclist goes uphill 10 km for 50 minutes and downhill minutes for 29 minutes, both applied to the pedals same force. How long he pass 10 km by plane? - Car

Car goes from point A to point B at speed 86 km/h and back 53 km/h. If they goes there and back at speed 67 km/h trip would take 10 minutes shorter. What is distance between points A and B? - Pedestrian up-down hill

Pedestrian goes for a walk first at plane at 4 km/h, then uphill 3 km/h. Then it is in the middle of the route, turns back and goes downhill at speed 6 km/h. Total walk was 6 hours. How many kilometers went pedestrian? - Steamship

Between the two ports on the river is going steamship. The journey there and back takes 8:42. Downstream steamship traveling at 20 km/h, upstream 9 km/h. What is the distance between the ports? - Average

What is the average speed of the car, where half of the distance covered passed at speed 66 km/h and the other half at 86 km/h. - Three drivers

Three driversdriving the same direction found that they have same amounth of gasoline. The first is enough to go 6 km, 4 km second and third 3km. Gasoline they divided so all three just drove to the nearest petrol station. How many km away was a petrol sta - Forth and back

Car goes from point A to point B at speed 78 km/h and back at 82 km/h. If went there and back at speed 81 km/h journey would take five minutes less. What is the distance between points A and B? - ICE train

German runways test a new ICE train between Munich and Berlin. The train runs to Berlin at a slow speed of 100 km/h. Back from Berlin goes faster. How quickly did the train have to go on a return trip so that the total average train speed for both journeys - Grass garden

Mr. Grass would itself be mowed garden for 5 hours. His son Michael could do it for 7 hours. They agreed that they wake up at 5 am and begins to mow together. Ms. Grass needs drive into town at 8.30. Michael says that at that time they're done with work.. - Timber log

The ship goes from point x to y. Downstream it takes 4 hours, upstream 6 hours. How long does it take from a point x to y a log? - Flying

The airplane from Prague to Bratislava was flying at a speed of 60 km/h less and back by 70 km/h greater than the original speed. What was the original speed if the plane returned to Prague according to the timetable?

We apologize, but in this category are not a lot of examples.
