The fastest living creature is a flying insect – the South African gadfly cephemia, the average flight speed of which is 200 m / s. How long could this insect fly a path s = 100 km?
Initial data: V (average flight speed of the South African gadfly) = 200 m / s; S (distance that the insect should fly) = 100 km (100 * 10 ^ 3 m).
The flight duration of the South African gadfly is determined by the formula: t = S / V.
Calculation: t = 100 * 10 ^ 3/200 = 500 s (8 min 20 s).
Answer: The South African gadfly will fly 100 kilometers in 8 minutes 20 seconds.
