- Movement

From the crossing of two perpendicular roads started two cyclists (each at different road). One runs at average speed 28 km/h, the second at average speed 24 km/h. Determine the distance between them after 45 minutes cycling. - Forces

In point O acts three orthogonal forces: F_{1}= 20 N, F_{2}= 7 N and F_{3}= 19 N. Determine the resultant of F and the angles between F and forces F_{1}, F_{2}and F_{3}. - Resistors

Two resistors connected in series give the resulting resistance 216Ω and 48Ω in parallel. Determine the resistance of these resistors. - Free fall

Lloyd fall from height 7 m. Calculate the speed he hit the ground when falling with acceleration g = 9.81 m/s^{2} - Pool

If water flows into the pool by two inlets, fill the whole for 8 hours. The first inlet filled pool 6 hour longer than second. How long pool take to fill with two inlets separately? - Car

Car is going 95 km per hour. How long distance goes in 1 minute? - 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? - Pumps

The tank is filled with two pumps in 16 minutes. The first pump is filled in 30 minutes earlier than two one. How many minutes is filled with the first pump? - Pipes

Water pipe has a cross-section 1087 cm^{2}. An hour has passed 960 m^{3}of water. How much water flows through the pipe with cross-section 300 cm^{2}per 9 hours if water flow same speed? - Carbon dioxide

Calculate how many grams of oxygen are in 50 g of carbon dioxide CO_{2}. Relative atomic mass of oxygen is 16 and of carbon is 12. - Wind drift

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? - The cyclist

The cyclist went from village to town. First half of journey went at 20 km/h. The second half of the journey, which mostly fell, went at 39 km/h. All journey took 88 minutes. Calculate the distance from the village to the town. - Widescreen monitor

Computer business hit by a wave of widescreen monitors and televisions. Calculate the area of the LCD monitor with a diagonal size 20 inches at ratio 4:3 and then 16:9 aspect ratio. Is buying widescreen monitors with same diagonal more advantageous th - 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? - Ladislav in Amsterdam

Ladislav was reward and went to conference in Amsterdam. Conferense fee was € 3484. Calculate how many books Ladislav could buy at the price of 48 and 52 euros if he don't want fill whole home library and he can buy only 70 books? - Acid

The barrel is 199 litres of 38% acid. How many percent acid occurs when 61 litres revoke and replace it with the same amount of water? - Rotation of the Earth

Calculate the circumferential speed of the Earth's surface at a latitude of 61°. Consider a globe with a radius of 6378 km. - Trolleybus

Trolleybus line No. 206 measured 24 km. If the trolleybus goes faster by 5 km/h, the way there and back would is shorter by 33 minutes. Calculate the trolleybus speed and how much time it takes a return trip. - Crossroads

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. - Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower in Paris is 300 meters high, is made of steel. Its weight is 8000 tons. How tall is the tower model made of the same material, if it weigh is 2.4 kg?
