Finally, he turns back towards the loading dock, drives 10m and deposits the pallet in a holding area. the entire operation took the driver 45 seconds. what is the average speed of the forklift during this operation? what is the average velocity of the forklift?

1. total distance covered: 20+13+10=43m
total time: 45s
avg speed: 43/45 = 0.96 m/s

final displacement: 20-13+10 = 17m
avg velocity: 0.38 m/s away from entrance
