(a) What is her average speed over the entire (b) What is her average velocity over the entire trip?
trip?

• physics -

Let A to B be 100 miles, and B to A be 100 miles.
Distance=200 miles
So what is the time
timeAB=100/4.5 timeBA=100/3
add the times to get total time
average velocity=distance/totaltime
Velocity=displacement/time
= (finalposition-initialposition)/time
