Question

# If a car covers $$\dfrac{2}{5^{th}}$$ of the total distance with $$v_{1}$$ speed and $$\dfrac{3}{5^{th}}$$ distance with $$v_{2}$$ then average speed:

A
12v1v2
B
v1+v22
C
2v1v2v1+v2
D
5v1v23v1+2v2

Solution

## The correct option is D $$\dfrac{5v_{1}v_{2}}{3v_{1}+2v_{2}}$$Time taken to cover $$\dfrac{2}{5}th$$ distance:$$t_1=\dfrac{2}{5}\dfrac{s}{v_1}=\dfrac{distance}{velocity}$$ where s is total distanceTime taken to cover $$\dfrac{3}{5}th$$ distance:$$t_1=\dfrac{3}{5}\dfrac{s}{v_2}$$Average speed $$=\dfrac{total \quad distance}{total \quad time}$$$$V_{mg}=\dfrac{s}{t_1+t_2}$$$$=\dfrac{s}{\dfrac{2s}{5v_1}+\dfrac{3s}{5v_2}}$$$$=\dfrac{5v_1v_2s}{s(2v_2s+3v_1s)}$$$$\dfrac{5v_1v_2}{3v_1+2v_2}$$Physics
