These are examples covering the topic speed 1 Elena has a one hour commute to school and she lives 20 miles away What is her average speed distance traveled 20 miles Average Speed 20 mph elaspsed time lhour 2 How fast does the moon go around the Earth The distance from the surface of the Earth to the moon is 238800 miles and the radius ofthe Earth is 6367 km The average speed is the total distance traveled divided by the time it takes to travel that distance We know that the moon takes one month 27 days to be precise to make one full circle around the earth The distance it travels is the circumference of the circle defined by its orbit If we call the radius of the orbit R then 2 238800 miles 39 161 Average Speed W E mlle m 2350mph elaspsed time t 27 days 24 houry day 3 How fast does the space shuttle go around the Earth The altitude of the space shuttle in orbit is about 200 miles ans 17 500 mph try working this one out 4 Practice for graphing motion Let us follow Erica s morning to school today i Erica gets in her car and goes 30 mph for 5 minutes to the nearest stop sign ii She realizes she forgets something makes an immediate U tum and goes 30 mph in the opposite direction back home for 5 minutes iii She searches for her textbook for 10 minutes in her house iv She then speeds at a constant speed of 100 mph for half an hour to make in time for class Draw a graph of velocity vs time Draw a graph of distance vs time How far away does Erica live What was her average velocity Erica s velocity vs time graph would look like this Velocity vs time for Erica39s Morning Velocity mph 1 o Time minutes To nd how far away she lives we would just nd the area under the graph For this we would need to calculate the areas of the three shaded rectangles Velocity vs time
