A car moves in a straight line at a speed of 65.0 km/h.  How far in km will the car move in 2.00 minutes at this speed?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given information:

Speed of the car (V) = 65 km/h.

The time period it moves with this velocity (t) = 2 min.

The distance it travelled within this time (d) =?

According to the definition of speed, the relation between these quantities is given as: d V

Step 2

Rewriting the above equation for “d” we get:
