## What is the velocity of 100m?

If he covered the 100m in 9.58 seconds, that’s a speed of 100/9.58 = 10.44 m/s (which is 23.35 mph), right? 23.35 mph is certainly Usain’s average speed over the race, but as you can appreciate, he does not run at this rate for the entire race.

**What is the average speed of a runner who covers 100 m in 10 s?**

= 11.11m/s.

### What is the average person 100 meter dash time?

The average adult male likely runs it in between 15 and 20 seconds. An average adult female would perhaps run it in 17–23. Someone will no doubt be faster if they regularly lift weights, as they will have more power.

**What is the velocity of a sprinter who runs 100 m north in 12 seconds?**

8.33 m/s

Details of the calculation: The average velocity of the sprinter is = (100 m)/(12 s) north = 8.33 m/s north.

## How fast do 100m sprinters go?

If you take the average speed of the current world 100 m record (Usain Bolt’s 9.58 s), you get about 10.44 meters/sec (23.35 miles/hr, 37.58 km/hr).

**How fast is a runner Travelling if she covers 100m in 12s?**

(Distance of race/time in seconds)*2.237 gives you speed in miles per hour. So if you run a 100 meter dash in 12 seconds then (100/12)*2.237 = about 18.64 miles per hour.

### What is the velocity of 100m/10s?

So, in this case, it will be 100m/10s, which is 10 m/s. By definition speed is distance divided by time to cover distance; actually that’s average speed. Velocity is a vector quantity which includes the direction of travel as well as speed. Average speed in this case is 100/10 = 10 metres per second.

**How do you calculate the average speed of a 100m runner?**

This is how you calculate his speed, for the 100metres. That is, the average speed for the entire distance, including the start from intertia until the race end where the athlete is decelerating. Multiply the time by 10, and divide 3600 by that figure. i.e. 10 by10 equals 100.

## How fast is a 10 second 100m dash?

As an aside, a 10 second 100m dash is extremely competitive…Olympic qualifying times hover just above 10 seconds, while world records hover just below 10 seconds.

**What is the formula for calculating average speed and distance?**

Assume, V – stands for average speed (velocity), T – stands for traveling time and D – stands for traveled distance. Average Speed can be calculated by using the formula: V = D/T Traveled distance can be calculated as: D = V*T Traveling time can be calculated using: T = D/V
