Velocity - math word problemsThe velocity of an object is the time rate of change of its position. Velocity is a specification of an object's speed and direction of motion (e.g. 20 m/s to the south).
In everyday use and in kinematics, the speed of an object is the magnitude of its velocity (the rate of change of its position) - scalar.
- The tourist
The tourist wanted to walk the route 16 km at a specific time. He, therefore, came out at the necessary constant speed. After a 4 km walk, however, he fell unplanned into the lake, where he almost drowned. It took him 20 minutes to get to the shore and re
- Self-oscillation period

- Water current
John swims upstream. After a while, he passes the bottle, from that moment he floats for 20 minutes in the same direction. He then turns around and swims back, and from the first meeting with the bottle, he sails 2 kilometers before he reaches the bottle.
- Skid friction
Find the smallest coefficient of skid friction between the car tires and the road so that the car can drive at a 200 m radius at 108 km/h and does not skid.
- The bridge
A vehicle weighing 5,800 kg passes 41 km/h on an arched bridge with a radius of curvature of 62 m. What force is pushing the car onto the bridge as it passes through the center? What is the maximum speed it can cross over the center of the bridge so that
- Angled cyclist turn
The cyclist passes through a curve with a radius of 20 m at 25 km/h. How much angle does it have to bend from the vertical inward to the turn?
- Two trains
Two trains departed from City A and City B against each other. They met after some time. The first train then took 9 hours to reach city B, and the second train took 4 hours to reach city A. In what proportion were the train speeds?
- A cold front
At 1:00 PM, the temperature was at 46 degrees. Then, a cold front moved in and decreased the temperature 12 degrees per hour. The temperature at 6:00 PM = _____ degrees.
