Calculate the time in seconds an Olympic Skier would take to finish a 5,000 meter race at an average velocity of 25 m/s downhill.

  • science -

    Recall that speed is distance travelled over a certain period of time, or
    v = d/t
    Since we know the distance (5000 m) and the speed (25 m/s), we can solve for the time:
    25 = 5000/t
    25t = 5000
    t = 5000/25
    t = 200 s

    Hope this helps :3
