•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 | 01 Dec, 2021, 07:20: AM
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
