A golfer rides in a golf cart at an average speed of 3.10 m/s for 26.0 s. She then gets out of the cart and starts walking at an average speed of 1.20 m/s. For how long (in seconds) must she walk if her average speed for the entire trip, riding and walking, is 2.30 m/s?

  1. avg speed= total distance /time=(ride distance + walk distance*timewalking)/(26s+timewalking)

  2. The Kentucky Derby is held at the Churchill Downs track in Louisville, Kentucky. The track is one and one-quarter miles in length. One of the most famous horses to win this event was Secretariat. In 1973 he set a Derby record that would be hard to beat. His average acceleration during the last four quarter-miles of the race was +0.0105 m/s2. His velocity at the start of the final mile (x = +1609 m) was about 16.58 m/s. The acceleration, although small, was very important to his victory. To assess its effect, determine the difference between the time he would have taken to run the final mile at a constant velocity of +16.58 m/s and the time he actually took. Although the track is oval in shape, assume it is straight for the purpose of this problem.
