A spacecraft is traveling at a speed of 2.3 km/sec. It takes 2.5 minutes to pass a small asteroid. how wide is the asteroid (i.e., how far did the spacecraft travel during this time)? Use (distance) = (velocity) x (time)

2.3 km/sec = 2.3 * 60 km /minute = 138km/minute

2.5 minute = 138 * 2.5 = 345 km travel by spacecraft.

Please best my answer Thanks.
