    How do I find the average speed when an airplane is flying in circles?

    The problem is as follows: At an air exhibition a biplane is flying in circles as shown in the figure from below. It is known that type of motion of this airplane is a rotation with constant angular acceleration. The radius of the circle is $2\,m$. Using this information find the average speed...

    How do I find the average angular velocity between two points?

    The problem is as follows: In the figure from below it is shown an observer who has put himself at the center of the coordinate system. He sees an object moving in a circular trajectory. If the average speed between $A$ and $B$ is $\left ( -2\hat{i}+\hat{j} \right )\frac{m}{s}$ and its position...

    Explain this step in Average speed problem?

    What is the average speed of a man who works at 1kmph for 1 hour, 2 kmph for 2 hours........ till 10 kmph for 10 hours? A) Average speed = (Total distance)/(Total time) = (1*1+2*2+3*3…….10*10)/(1+2+3****+10) = {1/6 n(n+1)(2n+1)}/ {1/2 n(n+1)} = 2n+1/3; (n = 10) = 7...

    How to find average speed for this problem?

    What is the average speed of a man who travels 1/4th distance at 10kmph, 1/3rd the distance at 20kmph and the rest at 12.5 kmph? Solution: Remaining time = 1 – (1/4 + 1/3) = 5/12 Multiplying 12 to fractions to get whole numbers; 3, 4 & 5. After this how to proceed?

    Fortnite math problem: is the average win rate exactly 1%?

    At first I thought for sure it's 1% exactly, but then I realized I was wrong. Consider two cases: Suppose there are exactly the same 100 players each game. In this case, since 1 player wins and the rest lose, the average win rate after n games is: (\sum_{i=1}{100} games won by person i /...

    What is the probability that the average velocity is ≥ 10^(−9 ) cm/sec?

    Physicists say that particles in a long tube are constantly moving back and forth along the tube, each with a velocity Vk (in cm/sec) at any given moment that is normally distributed, with mean µ = 0 and variance σ ^(2) = 1. Suppose there are 10^(20) particles in the tube. What is the...
