  1. Free fall
    volny_pad Lloyd fall from height 7 m. Calculate the speed he hit the ground when falling with acceleration g = 9.81 m/s2
  2. Tractors
    tractors Fields go plow two tractors with various performance. The first tractor plow whole field in 11 hours, the second tractor plow whole field 19 hours longer. How long take plow whole field with two tractors?
  3. Resistors
    resistors Two resistors connected in series give the resulting resistance 216Ω and 48Ω in parallel. Determine the resistance of these resistors.
  4. Wind drift
    airplane The plane flies at 860 km/h, passing distance 3000 kilometers with the wind and once again against the wind for 6 h 59 min. What is the wind speed?
  5. Crossroads
    crossroad Passenger car and an ambulance come to the rectangular crossroad, the ambulance left. Passenger car at speed 39 km/h and ambulance at 41 km/h. Calculate such a relative speed of the ambulance move to the car.
