Question

Mark averaged 60 miles per hour during the 30-mile trip to college. Because of heavy traffic he was able to average only 20 miles per hour during the return trip. What was Mark's average speed for the round trip?

Answer #1

**Mark averaged 60 miles per hour during the 30 mile trip
to college.**

**Now, if he goes 60 miles in 1 hour, then the 30 mile
trip to college will take Mark 30/60=0.5 hours.**

**During the return trip, he could only average 20 miles
per hour.**

**Now, if he goes 20 miles in 1 hour, then the 30 mile
return trip from college will take 30/20=1.5 hours.**

**So, the total distance Mark travels back and forth is
30+30, ie. 60 miles.**

**The total time Mark takes for this round trip, is
0.5+1.5, ie. 2 hours.**

**So, Mark's average speed in the round trip
is**

**=60/2**

**=30 miles per hour.**

**The answer is**

**Mark's average speed during the round trip is 30 miles
per hour.**

A data set of traffic stream characteristics, such as space mean
speed (u: miles per hour), density (k: vehicles per mile) and
traffic flow rate (q: vehicles per hour), was collected for a
freeway lane. The data reveals a relationship between flow rate (q)
and density (k) as calibrated below:
q=66*(k-k^2/160)
Where, q = flow rate of the lane (vehicles per hour); k =
density of the lane (vehicles per mile). Answer the following
questions:
(1)Determine the free-flow space mean...

Two cars of the same mass drive with the same speed of 60 miles

is the speed (in miles per hour) of the two cars, after they
undergo a completely inelastic collision and continue to move
jointly into the 45 degrees direction? (Moving jointly into the 45
degrees direction means that after the collision the two cars move
together into the direction right between the directions of...

arrivals in any hour follows a poisson distribution. The airport
can land 60 planes per hour on average in good weather and 30
planes per hour in bad weather. The number landed planes in any
hour follows an exponential distribution. When there is congestion,
the plane that arrives first, lands first. There is only one
landing...
