Average speed

What is the average speed you have to move the way around the world in 80 days? (Path along the equator, round to km/h).

Result

v =  21 km/h

Solution:

t=80 24=1920 r=6371 s=2π r=2 3.1416 637140030.1736 v=s/t=40030.1736/192020.849=21  km/h t = 80 \cdot \ 24 = 1920 \ \\ r = 6371 \ \\ s = 2 \pi \cdot \ r = 2 \cdot \ 3.1416 \cdot \ 6371 \doteq 40030.1736 \ \\ v = s/t = 40030.1736/1920 \doteq 20.849 = 21 \ \text { km/h }



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
