Two readings are taken from an aircraft's flight record
Time - 08:55 Distance travelled - 957
Time - 09:07 Distance travelled -1083
For the period of time between the two readings, how do i calculate
a)the distance travelled in kilometres and b)the average speed of the aircraft in km/h.

  • Mathematics -

    total distance ... just add them up
    average speed = total distance/total time
