# NFL quarterback Patrick mahomes threw a pass that clocked 62mph. How fast is this in yards per second?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: The speed of the pass that clocked is 30.31 yards per seconds Step-by-step explanation:Given as :The speed of the pass = 62 miles per hourLet The speed in yards per second = x ypsSo, ∵ The speed = 62 miles per hourOr, The speed = [tex]\dfrac{\textrm 62 miles}{\textrm 1 hour}[/tex]or, The speed = [tex]\dfrac{\textrm 62 miles}{\textrm 3600 secons}[/tex]∵ In 1 hour = 3600 secondsSo, The speed = 0.0172 miles per secondNow, AgainSince 1 mile = 1760 yardsSo, 62 miles = 1760 × 62 = 109,120 yards∴ The speed in yard per second = [tex]\dfrac{\textrm 109,120 yard}{\textrm 3600 seconds}[/tex]I.e The speed in yards per second = 30.31 yards per secondsHence The speed of the pass that clocked is 30.31 yards per seconds Answer
