One giraffe neuron has an axon 4.6 m long that extends from its toe to the base of its neck. How long will it take a nerve impulse to travel this distance at a speed of 75 m/s?

You can still ask an expert for help

d=rt where d is the distance, r is the rate (the speed), and tt is the time. Dividing both sides by r then gives $t=\frac{d}{r}$
If the impulse must travel a distance of d=4.6 m at a rate of r=75 m/s, then the time it will take is $t=\frac{4.6}{75}\approx 0.061$ seconds
