Time taken for first interval: t1 = 30/30 = 1 hr
average speed to maintain: v = 40 km/hr
total distance, s = 60 km.
Since average speed = (total distance travelled)/(total time taken)
thus total time taken: T =  60/40 = 3/2= 1.5 hr
thus time taken for second interval = 0.5 hr
thus speed in second interval: 30/0.5 = 60 km/hr
