He then turns back towards the entrance and drives 13m to pick up a pallet of equipment. 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
