- The swimmer

The swimmer swims at a constant speed of 0.85 m/s relative to water flow. The current speed in the river is 0.40 m/s, the river width is 90 m. a) What is the resulting speed of the swimmer with respect to the tree on the riverbank when the swimmer motio - Cross road

From the junction of two streets that are perpendicular to each other, two cyclists (each on another street) walked out. One ran 18 km/h and the second 24 km/h. How are they away from a) 6 minutes, b) 15 minutes? - Two aircraft

Two planes fly to the airport. At some point, the first airplane is away from the airport 98 km and the second 138 km. The first aircraft flies at an average speed of 420 km/h, the second average speed is 360 km/h, while the tracks of both planes are perp - Train

The train is running at speeds of 96 km/h. From the beginning of braking to full stop train run for 3.3 minutes. If the train slows the braking equally, calculate the distance of the place from the station where you need to start to brake. - 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.

We apologize, but in this category are not a lot of examples.
