Calculating Range for a Constant Velocity

1.  Beginning city: _varies____________ Destination city: ___ varies____________

Distance traveled d = __ varies___________ miles

1. d = ___ miles x 1.6__________ km
2. On which airliner are you flying? (circle one): Boeing 737-300 / Boeing 747-400

1. The maximum speed of your airliner is: v = 737 = 880 km/hr , 747 = 984 km/hr

1. How long will it take you to make your flight? (t = v / d)

t  = ___varies by distance____________ km / _______________ km/h = _____________ hrs.

2. Where in the world are Orville and Wilbur going now?

Max. velocity of the Boeing 747-400 v = 984 km/hr

 Cleveland to Miami d = 2016 km Flight time t = 2 hrs. Cleveland to Los Angeles d = 3838 km Flight time t = 4 hrs. Cleveland to San Antonio d = 2338 km Flight time t = 2.4 hrs.

In what city did Orville and Wilbur land? __Los Angeles_________________

3. The Concorde:
1. a. How fast does the Concorde fly? v = 2160 km/h

b. What is the approximate distance between New York City and London? d = 6480 km
