I had a physics problem which I had some problem understanding. The problem is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

You plan a trip on which you want to average 90km/h. You cover the first half of the distance at an average speed of only 48km/h. What must your average speed be in the second half of the trip to meet your goal? Note that the velocities are based on half the distance, not half the time. Is this reasonable?

Thanks for your help!!
