•A jogger runs in a straight line with

–an average velocity of 5 m/s for 4 min.

–an average velocity of 4 m/s for 3 min.

•What is the total displacement?

•What is the average velocity during this time?

### Asked by bossyshiba | 1st Dec, 2021, 07:20: AM

Expert Answer:

### Displacement in 4 minutes with speed 5 m/s = speed × time = 5 m/s × 4 min × 60 s/min = 1200 m
Displacement in 3 minutes with speed 4 m/s = speed × time = 4 m/s × 3 min × 60 s/min = 720 m
Total displacement in 7 minutes = ( 1200 + 720 ) m = 1920 m
By assuming all displacements in straight line , we get average velocity as
Average velocity = Net displacement / time = 1920 m / ( 7 min × 60 s/min ) = 4.57 m/s
