PART-B: Hand in your solutions to the following questions in class, on Wednesday 19 September-2010.

Show the detailed calculations. Write your final answers in the box.

1. A person travels by car from one city to another with different constant speeds between pairs of

cities. She drives for 30.0 min at 80.0 km/h, 12.0 min at 100 km/h, and 45.0 min at 40.0 km/h and

spends 15.0 min eating lunch and buying gas. (a) Determine the average speed for the trip. (b)

Determine the distance between the initial and final cities along the route.

( ) ( ) ( )

= 40.0 km h 0.750 h 30.0 km x t v

Thus, the total distance traveled x = (40.0 + 20.0 + 30.0) km = 90.0 km, and the elapsed time is

t = 0.500 h + 0.200 + 0.750 h + 0.250 h = 1.70 h).

2. A motorist drives north for 35.0 minutes at 85.0 km/h and then stops for 15.0 minutes. He then

continues north, traveling 130 km in 2.00 h. (a) What is his total displacement? (b) What is his average

velocity?
