# Homework Help: college physics

Posted by Amy on Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at 9:47pm.

An airport worker needs to make it across a luggage belt in order to retrieve a stuck suitcase. The belt is moving with 1.6 m/s, and the worker can run with v=1.7 m/s. If he wants to make it straight across the d=2.3 m wide belt, how long will it take for him to reach the other side?

d=velocity*time
2.3=1.7*t solve for time.
