A train takes 2 hours and 30 minutes to travel between 2 cities that are 210 km apart. What was the average speed of the train?
Could someone take me through the steps please on how to get the answer

  • physics -

    avg velocity=distance/time

  • physics -

    is that supposed to be d=vt?

  • physics -

    No. The definition of average speed is distance traveled divided by time.

  • physics -

    oh wait no it's asking me for average speed

  • physics -

    As bobpursley stated:

    "The definition of average speed is distance traveled divided by time."
