A car travels through a school zone at a speed of 36 m/s was the 45 mi/h speed limit exceeded? yes or no

  • physical science -

    45mph*5280ft/mi*1m/3.2808ft*1hr/3600s

    speed limit= 20.12 m/s

    the speed limit is less than the speed of the car.

    yes, the car exceeded the speed limit.

  • physical science -

    V = 36m/s * 1mi/1600m * 3600s/h = 81mi/h

  • physical science -

    no
