So i was watching the video where the mrs couldn't price the question; then i thought: what if she did, however in method that turn the tables, leaving the questioner flabbergasted. Here I am, in ~ work, thinking about the many convoluted way to deal with this problem. Here's what I come up with:

Let x be the time in hours it takes to go 80 miles. Collection v(t) = 80.

You are watching: If you are going 80 mph how long

∫v(t)dt = 80 native 0 come x

Then 80x - 80(0) = 80

80x = 80

x = 1 hour

How would you price this question, if you want to mess through that person?

How lengthy does it take to go 80 miles if you're going 80mph? The price is simple.

80 miles is the about fifty percent the broad of Florida. Florida is whereby Disney human being is. Disney civilization is wherein Mickey mouse lives. Mickey computer mouse is in numerous movies. Movies room made in Hollywood, California. California is whereby the gold rush happened. Often, gold rushers would find a single gold nugget. Obviously yellow is great because it has actually a monetary value. We also know the time is money. Just how much money is one gold nugget worth? One hour. And there is her answer.

If ns am walking 80 miles per hour, it would certainly take me 10 minutes to walk 80 miles.

Since i am no going 80 miles per hour, the explain is vacuously true.

You might expand her answer by re-deriving the whole integral calculus.

You could expand the by structure up the interpretations of actual numbers from ZFC. Then usage those come re-derrive integral calculus.

We recognize that there are 60 minute in an hour. If we're traveling at a rate of 80 mph, then that way we're traveling at 80/60 = 8/6 = 4/3 miles per minute. ~ one minute we take trip 4/3 miles. After two minutes we take trip 4/3 + 4/3 miles. ~ 3 minutes we travel 4/3 + 4/3 + 4/3 miles. Thus after one hour (sixty minutes) we travel Σ(4/3)i wherein i goes from 1 to 60. For this reason after one hour, we take trip 4/3 * 60 = 240/3 = 80 miles.

To more convolute her answer, justification why it's a constant speed. You feeling no force, therefore F = 0. You have mass, so by Newton's 2nd law a = 0. Because a = 0, v = constant.

Careful. Don't incorporate the index in the summand in this case.

How about I shot to include technicalities to make her right.

My physics teacher drilled right into our heads the velocities space all relative.
