Textbook Problem

The speed of a nerve impulse in the human body is about 100 m/s. If you accidentally stub your toe in the dark, estimate the time it takes the nerve impulse to your brain.

To determine
The time elapsed to reach the nerve impulse from the toe to brain.

Explanation

Given info: The speed of the nerve impulse is 100m/s. Consider the height of the human body to be 2 m.

Explanation:

The formula to calculate the time taken by the impulse to reach the brain is,

Δt=Δxv

Here,

Δt is the time taken.

Δx is the height of the human body.

v is the speed velocity of the nerve impulse
