Helllo I hope this email finds you well. Question how much distance dose' a vehicle travel moving 35 MPH in 43 seconds.

Hello Guy,

One way to do it is to convert 35 miles/hour to feet/sec:

(35 miles/hr)*(5280 ft/mile)*(1 hr/3600 sec)

----------------------------- since there are 5280 ft per mile and 3600 sec to an hr

this gives 154/3 ft/sec or about 51.33 ft/sec...now multiply by 43 seconds

to get 2207.33 ft or about 0.418 mile.

Good?
