A dog sled goes straight at 9.8 m/s for 10.8 hours. Then the dogs rest
for the remainder of the day. What's the average velocity for the entire
24-hour day? Give your answer in m/s.
Please note that time is 10 hours and 48 minutes, which is equivalent to 38880 seconds.
During that time the space S traveled by our dog is:
S=9.8*38880=381024 meters. So the average speed v during 24 hours, is:
v=(381024)/(86400)=4.41 m/sec, since 24 hours are equivalent to 86400 seconds
