Question

Nerve impulses in a human body travel at a speed of about 100 m/s. Suppose a person accidentally steps barefoot on a pebble. About how much time does it take the nerve impulse to travel from the foot to the brain (in s)? Assume the person is 1.60 m tall and the nerve impulse travels at uniform speed.
