# The cyclist covered 3 km in 10 minutes at what speed the cyclist was moving.

December 27, 2020 | education

| The cyclist’s speed can be calculated using the formula:

V = S / t, where V is the speed of the cyclist (m / s), S is the distance covered by the cyclist (S = 3 km = 3 * 10³ m), t is the time the cyclist moves (t = 10 min = 10 * 60 s = 600 s).

Let’s calculate the speed of the cyclist:

V = S / t = 3 * 10³ / 600 = 5 m / s.

Answer: The speed of the cyclist is 5 m / s.
