I have two problems.
1. Your dog is sent to fetch the newspaper in the morning. He runs directly away from you,traveling 62.0 feet in 5.0 seconds. He then turns around and in 4.0 seconds runs 30 feet back toward you before deciding to stop. Calculate the dog's average speed and average velocity.
2. Two cars are traveling 12 miles apart and are approaching each other on a straight road. Each car is moving at 60 million/h relative to the road. How long will it take before the cars pass each other? Give your answer in minutes.
The Attempt at a Solution
I am pretty sure of my answers, but would like to check them before turning them in.
1. Speed: 10 ft/s Velocity: 32 ft/s
2. 6 minutes.
Thanks in advance!
