An 18-year-old runner can complete a 10.0 km course with an average speed of 4.58 m/s. A 50-year-old runner can cover the same distance with an average speed of 4.36 m/s. How much later (in seconds) should the younger runner start in order to finish the the course at the same time as the older runner?

  • physics - ,

    ytime = 10km * 1000m/km / 4.8m/s = 2083.3 sec

    otime = 10km * 1000m/km / 4.36m/s = 2293.6 sec

    difference = 210.3 sec

    the youngster can loll around for about 3.5 minutes before taking off.
