Generally, The average speed is simply derived by dividing the entire distance traveled by the total time it takes to go that distance.
In conclusion, The equation for speed is
S = d t
Therefore
S = 1500 484 S = 3.099   m / s

Water stands at a depth H in a large, open tank whose sidewalls are vertical. A hole is made in one of the walls at a depth h below the water surface.
a) at what distance R from the foot of the wall does the emerging stream strike the floor?
b) How far above the bottom of the tank could a second hole be cut so that the stream emerging from it could have the same range as for the first hole?

A long, straight, copper wire with a circular cross-sectional area of 2.1mm2 carries a current of 16 A. The resistivity of the material is 2.0×108 Om.
a) What is the uniform electric field in the material?
b) If the current is changing at the rate of 4000 A/s, at whatrate is the electric field in the material changing?
c) What is the displacement current density in the material in part (b)?
d) If the current is changing as in part (b), what is the magnitude of the magnetic field 6.0cm from the center of the wire? Note that both the conduction current and the displacement currentshould be included in the calculation of B. Is the contribution from the displacement current significant?
