What distance does the person walk between 𝑡 = 0 s and 𝑡 = 2 s ?

What distance does the person walk between 𝑡 = 2 s and 𝑡 = 4 s ?

What distance does the person walk between 𝑡 = 4 s and 𝑡 = 6 s ?

What distance does the person walk between 𝑡 = 0 s and 𝑡 = 6 s ?

Two children, Farida and Adam, go running through some fields. They both enter a field that is 36 m long and 77 m wide, entering at the field’s bottom left-hand corner at the same time as each other. Farida runs along the edges of the field at an average speed of 5.65 m/s, first to the top left-hand corner and then to the top right-hand corner. Adam runs straight across the field to the top right-hand corner, but the long grass in the field makes him run at an average speed of only 2.5 m/s. What is the difference in the time taken for Farida and Adam to arrive at the top right-hand corner of the field?


Two cars, A and B, are approaching a perpendicular junction. Car A is moving at 35 m/s north and car B is moving at 25 m/s east. Car A arrives at the junction 5 seconds before car B arrives there. Car B was initially 375 m from the junction. How far from the junction was car A initially?
