Question

A plane traveling with a velocity measured in meters per second, is described by vector a = 5,6). Find the
speed of the plane.

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    The speed of the plane is [tex]v=1.2\: m/s[/tex]

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The vector (5,6) represents a point in the coordinate system time-position.

    So, we have that at t = 5 s the position is x = 6.

    Let's recall that the slope of this vector is the speed, then using the tangent definition:

    [tex]v=\frac{x}{t}=\frac{6}{5}[/tex]

    [tex]v=1.2\: m/s[/tex]

    I hope it helps you!
