Velocity and Displacement

The Space Shuttle travels at a speed of about 7.60 103 m/s. The blink of an astronaut's eye lasts about 120 ms. How many football fields (length = 91.4 m) does the Shuttle cover in the blink of an eye?

  1. d = 7.6*10^3 * 0.12s = 912m.

    912m / 91.4m/field = 9.98 Football field.
