# A sprinter runs 100 meters in 11.5 seconds. What is the runner's average running rate in meters per second?

Average speed is equal to distance divided by time.

To find the average running rate, divide the distance by the time:

Average running rate = Distance / Time

Average running rate = 100 meters / 11.5 seconds = 8.69565217 meters per second (approximately 8.7 m/s).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- A rocket travelling at +88m/s is accelerated to +132m/s over a 15s interval. What is its displacement during this time?
- At #t=0#, a particle is located at #x=25m# and has a velocity of #15m/s# in the positive #x# direction. The acceleration of the particle varies with time as shown in the diagram. What is the position of the particle at #t=5.0s#?
- An object's two dimensional velocity is given by #v(t) = ( tsin(pi/3t) , 2cos(pi/2t )- 3t )#. What is the object's rate and direction of acceleration at #t=5 #?
- An object has a mass of #4 kg#. The object's kinetic energy uniformly changes from #120 KJ# to # 64KJ# over #t in [0,6s]#. What is the average speed of the object?
- An object is at rest at #(1 ,3 ,5 )# and constantly accelerates at a rate of #4/3 m/s^2# as it moves to point B. If point B is at #(3 ,6 ,4 )#, how long will it take for the object to reach point B? Assume that all coordinates are in meters.
