Helmet

Nowadays cycling better results could be obtained not only due to rider physical preparation but also thanks to using updated technologies. One of the essential parts of the rider´s equipment is his or her helmet.
While most bikers wear a helmet mainly to protect themselves, racers use modern technologies, which can improve certain features like aerodynamics and, in this way, enable them to reach a better time in a race. It´s quite essential, especially during the particular parts of the race called time trial.

Providing the helmet thanks to its advanced shape can increase the racer´s performance of a half percent. HOW MUCH can the racer shorten the time in a 40-minute time trial?

Result

t =  12 s

Solution:

p=0.5100=1200=0.005  t1=40 min=40 60 s=2400 s  t=p t1=0.005 2400=12=12  s p = \dfrac{ 0.5 }{ 100 } = \dfrac{ 1 }{ 200 } = 0.005 \ \\ \ \\ t_{ 1 } = 40 \ min = 40 \cdot \ 60 \ s = 2400 \ s \ \\ \ \\ t = p \cdot \ t_{ 1 } = 0.005 \cdot \ 2400 = 12 = 12 \ \text{ s }



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!
