Vincent decided to beat his friend's average velocity of 4 m/s. What is the shortest amount of time to beat his friend's recordin a displacent of 20 meters? *SHOW ALL WORK AND EXPLAIN THOROUGHLY*

  • Physics -

    I will be happy to critique your thinking.

  • Physics -

    velocity = displacement/time

    4m/s = 20/time

    20/4 = 5s

    so any time less than 5 seconds is enough to beat vincent.

    I think that's the answer..
