3. If a cyclist in the Tour de France traveled southwest a distance of 12,250 meters in one hour, what would
the velocity of the cyclist be?
4. Calculate the speed of a dog running through a field if he is covering 23.7 meters in 54 seconds.
5. If a cross country runner covers a distance of 347 meters in 134 seconds what is her speed?
6. What is the speed of a baseball that travels 49 meters in 2.4 seconds?
7. What is the speed of a horse in meters per second that runs a distance of 1.2 miles in 2.4 minutes?
8. Calculate the velocity of a car that travels 556 kilometers northeast in 3.4 hours. Leave your answer in
kilometers per hour.

distance was 43.6 minutes, what was the speed of the jogger?
10. Which object has a greater velocity, a ball rolling down a 3.4 meter hill in six seconds or a fish
swimming upstream and covering 5.4 meters in 0.4 minutes?
11. If Seneca decides to walk across town to a store that is .95 kilometers away and she has only 25 minutes
to get there, what speed does she need to maintain to arrive on time?
12. If a projectile flies north 387 meters in 5.8 seconds, what is its velocity?

14. As a shuttle bus comes to a normal stop, it slows from 9.00m/s to 0.00m/s in 5.00s. Find the average
acceleration of the bus.
15. During a race, a sprinter increases from 5.0 m/s to 7.5 m/s over a period of 1.25s. What is the sprinter’s
average acceleration during this period?
16. A baby sitter pushing a stroller starts from rest and accelerates at a rate of 0.500m/s2. What is the
velocity of the stroller after it has traveled for 4.75 minutes?
17. A bicyclist accelerates at 0.89m\s2 during a 5.0s interval. What is the change in the speed of the bicyclist
and the bicycle?
18. A freight train traveling with a speed of 18.0m/s begins braking as it approaches a train yard. The train’s
acceleration while braking is -0.33m/s2. What is the train’s speed after 23 seconds?
19. A skater travels at a constant velocity of 4.5m/s westward, then speeds up with a steady acceleration of
2.3m/s2. Calculate the skater’s speed after accelerating for 5.0s.
20. Marisa’s car accelerates at an average rate of 2.6m/s2. Calculate how long it takes her car to accelerate
from 24.6m/s to 26.8m/s.
21. If a rocket undergoes a constant total acceleration of 6.25m/s2, so that its speed increases from rest to
about 750m/s, how long will it take for the rocket to reach 750m/s.
22. A dog runs with an initial speed of 1.5m/s on a waxed floor. It slides to a stop with an acceleration of
-0.35m/s2. How long does it take for the dog to come to a stop?
23. A hockey puck sliding on a frozen lake comes to rest after traveling 175m.
If it's initial velocity is 1.0m/s, what is its acceleration if that acceleration is assumed constant?
