Problem 1) A horse trots past a fencepost located 12 m to the left of a gatepost. It then passes another fencepost located 24 m to the right of the gatepost 11 s later. What is the average velocity of the horse? 2) A biker travels at an average speed of 18 km/h along a 0.30 km straight segment of a bike path. How much time does the biker take to travel this segment? 3) A skater glides off a frozen pond onto a patch of ground at a speed of 1.8 m/s. Here she is slowed at a constant rate of 3.00 m/s 2 . How fast is the skater moving when she has slid 0.37 m across the ground? 4) A rock is thrown downward from the top of a cliff with an initial speed of 12 m/s. If the rock hits the ground after 2.0 s, what is the height of the cliff? (Disregard air resistance. a = g = 9.81 m/s 2 .) 5) A lightning bug flies at a velocity of 0.25 m/s due east toward another lightning bug seen off in the distance. A light easterly breeze blows on the bug at a velocity of 0.25 m/s. What is the resultant velocity of the lightning bug? 6) A duck waddles 2.5 m east and 6.0 m north.
