In an experiment, a seabird was taken from its nest, flown a distance 5190 km away, and released. It found its way back to its nest a time 13.8 days after release.

What was the bird's average velocity in m/s for the whole episode, from leaving the nest to returning?

Would I double the distance traveled to find the answer?

  1. Because its displacement (finalposition-initial position) is zero,its average velocty is zero.

  2. Oh I forgot about displacement.
    Thank you very much.
