If a Sprinter Runs a Distance of 100 Metres in 9.83 Seconds, Calculate His Average Speed in Km/H. - Science

Short Note
Sum

If a sprinter runs a distance of 100 metres in 9.83 seconds, calculate his average speed in km/h.

Solution

Distance (d) = 100 m
Time (t) = 9.83 s
So, we can calculate the speed as :
"Average speed" = "Total distance travelled"/"Time"

Average speed for the entire journey :

= 100/9.83

= 10.173 m/s

Now , we can convert it in km/h as :

= ((10.173)(3600))/1000

= 36.62 km/hr

Is there an error in this question or solution?
