a car is moving with a uniform speed of 15.0 m/s along a straight path. what is the difference covered by the car in 12.0 minutes?

  • physics -

    distance= velocity*time.

    change minutes to seconds.

  • physics -

    Distance = speed * time
    The key here is to convert the given data into the correct and compatible units.
    For example,
    Speed = 15 m/s
    = 15 metres per second, while
    Time = 12.0 minutes
    = 12.0 * 60 seconds
    = 720 seconds.

    Now we can apply the formula
    Distance = Speed * Time
    = 15 metres/second * 720 seconds
    = ___?___ metres
