Exceeding 3497

The maximum allowed speed in the village is 50km/h. The police measured that the car had crossed the 800 m long section in 40 seconds. Did the driver get fined for exceeding the speed limit?

Correct answer:

v =  72 km/h

Step-by-step explanation:

t=40 s h=40:3600  h=0.01111 h s=800 m km=800:1000  km=0.8 km v=s/t=0.8/0.0111=72 km/h  v>50 km/h v=72=72 km/h
