Dear sachin,

By definition the average speed is the ration of the total traveled distance and the total traveled time. Let us introduce the total traveled distance of the car as L. Then the time of the travel up the hill is

The time of the travel down the hill is

The total traveled time is

Then the average velocity is

P,Q,R,S are four vector of equal magnitude. If P + Q - R= 0 angle between P and Q is theta 1. If P + Q - S = 0 angle between P and S is theta2. the ratio of theta 1 and theta 2 is
Write P +Q – R as P + Q = R take modulus both sides and square it. |P|^2 + |Q|^2 + 2P.Q = |R|^2 Now all have same magnitude, P.Q = -|R|^2/2 ….......................(1) cos(thetha1) =...
