Distance and travel average speed

Question Description

I’m stuck on a Physics question and need an explanation.

During the first 18 minutes of a 1.0-h trip, a car has an average speed of 11 m/s. What must the average speed of the car be during the last 42 minutes of the trip if the car is to have an average speed of 21 m/s for the entire trip?

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Final Answer

distance travelled in 18 min is= 11880m 
total distance =75600m 
remaining distance= 75600-11880 
= 63720m 
time = 42 min = 2520 sec 
speed = 63720/2520 = 25.28m/sec
