Average velocity (should be easy....) 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In a relay race, each contestant runs a distance 25.1m while carrying an egg balanced on a spoon, turns around, and comes back to the starting point. Edith runs the first distance 25.1m in a time = 19.1s. On the return trip she is more confident and takes only time = 14.1s. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution What is her average velocity for the entire round trip???? so i found the avg vel of her 1st trip.... 25.1m / 19.1s = 1.31 m/s then i found the avg vel of her 2nd trip..... 25.1m / 14.1s = 1.78 m/s So then wouldnt the avg vel of the entire trip just be .... (1.31+1.78) / 2 = 1.55 m/s This is wrong though..
