An athlete leaves one end of a pool of length L at
t = 0
and arrives at the other end at time t1. She swims back and arrives at the starting position at time t2. If she is swimming initially in the positive x direction, determine her average velocities symbolically in the first half of the swim, the second half of the swim, and the round trip. (Assume that time t2 is from the other end of the pool to the starting point. Use any variable or symbol stated above as necessary. Indicate the direction with the sign of your answer.)
(a) the first half of the swim
(b) the second half of the swim
(c) the round trip
(d) What is her average speed for the round trip?
average speed =
Where do I even begin?

In searching the bottom of a pool at night, a watchman shines a narrow beam of light from his flashlight, 1.3 m above the water level, onto the surface of the water at a point 2.7m from the edge of the pool. Where does the spot of light hit the bottom of
1.what is the shortest possible time in which a bacterium could travel a distance of 8.4 cm across a Petri dish at a constant speed of 3.5 mm/s. the answer is 24s. how? 3.An athlete swims from the north end to the south end of a 50.0m pool in 20.0s and
A swimming pool is 3 feet deep in the shallow end. The bottom of the pool has a steady downward drop of 12 degrees toward the deep end. If the pool is 50 feet long, how deep is the deep end. So I said that first you would subtract three from 50, of course
The drawing shows a skateboarder moving at v = 4.8 m/s along a horizontal section of a track that is slanted upward by 48° above the horizontal at its end, which is h = 0.48 m above the ground. When she leaves the track, she follows the characteristic
