(b) He must cover the remaining 1720 20 days × 24 hr/day 1720 nmi = 10.2 nmi/hr. This is nmi in 7 days, which requires an average speed of 7 days × 24 hr/day about the same as his maximum possible speed. Since it’s unlikely that he can maintain the highest possible speed for the entire 7 days, he should probably conclude that he will not be able to complete the trip within the 20-day limit. d 35 km = 14 km/hr Average speed = = 2.5 hr t Average speed = 110 km 110 × 103 m = = 1.27 m/s.

Then the cheetah’s position is given by xc = vc t. The antelope’s starting position is 50 m from the cheetah’s starting position, so the position of the antelope is given by xa = va t + 50. When the cheetah catches the antelope, their positions are the same, and we get vc t = va t + 50. The speeds are νc = 101 km/h = 28.1 m/s and 50 m 50 m va = 88 km/h = 24.4 m/s.

Call the antelope’s initial position x0. We use the same equation that says the cheetah catches the antelope, vc t = va t + x0 , but now we set t = 20 s and calculate what head start x0 the antelope needs. We get x0 = (vc − va )t = (28.1 m/s − 24.4 m/s) (20 s) = 72 m.
