# Velocity - high school - math problems

The 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.

- Clock

How many times a day hands on a clock overlap? - Gimli Glider

Aircraft Boeing 767 lose both engines at 42000 feet. The plane captain maintain optimum gliding conditions. Every minute, lose 1910 feet and maintain constant speed 211 knots. Calculate how long it takes to plane from engine failure to hit the ground. Ca - 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? - Two cars

Two cars started against each other at the same time to journey long 293 km. First car went 41 km/h and second 41 km/h. What distance will be between this cars 20 minutes before meet? - Pedestrian up-down hill

Pedestrian goes for a walk first at plane at 4 km/h, then uphill 3 km/h. Then it is in the middle of the route, turns back and goes downhill at speed 6 km/h. Total walk was 6 hours. How many kilometers went pedestrian? - 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. - Train and car

The train and the car started at a constant speed to journey. When the train travels 87 km, the car travels 97 km. How many km travels the train when the car travels 87 km? - 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. - Tourists

From the cottage started first group of tourists at 10:00 AM at speed 4 km/h. The second started after them 47 minutes later at speed 6 km/h. How long and how many kilometers from the cottage will catch the first group? - Ships

At 8:40 the ship set sail at 12 km/h. At 19:10 followed by at 29 km/h sail boat. When sail boat catches up the ship? How many minutes will catch up took? - Speed of Slovakian trains

Rudolf decided to take the train from the station 'Trnava' to 'Zemianske Kostoľany'. In the train timetables found train R 725 Remata : km0Bratislava hl.st.12:574Bratislava-Vinohrady13:0113:0219Pezinok13:1213:1346Trnava13:3013:3263Leopoldov13:4514:0168H - Map

On the tourist map at a scale of 1 : 50000 is distance between two points along a straight road 3.7 cm. How long travels this distance on a bike at 30 km/h? Time express in minutes. - Trains

From station 130 km away started passenger train and after 2.2 hours after the express train, which travels 37 km an hour more. Express train finish journey 7 minutes early. Calculate the average speed of this two trains. - 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} - Scouts

The boys from scout group traveled 5 days distance 115 km. Every day walked 1.5 km less than the previous day. How many kilometers scouts walked in the first day? - 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. - Cyclist

A cyclist is moving at 35 km/h and follow pedestrian who is walking at speed 4 km/h. Walker has an advantage 19 km. How long take cyclist to catch up with him? - Dog

Man goes with a dog on a long walk 17 km from the house. Man is walking at speed 4.9 km/h and a dog that constantly running between house and man at 12.6 km/h. How many kilometers will run the dog when they reach their destination? - Two runners

Two runners ran simultaneously towards each other from locations distant 34.6 km. The average speed of the first runner was 1/5 higher than the average speed of the second runner. How long should each ran a 34.6 km, if you know that they meet after 67 mi - Fall
