Mr Chan flies from London to Los Angeles, a distance of 8800 km. The flight takes 11 hours and 10 minutes.

 

(a) (i) His plane leaves London at 09 35 local time. The local time in Los Angeles is 8 hours behind the time in London. Calculate the local time when the plane arrives in Los Angeles

 

(ii) Work out the average speed of the plane in km/h.

( i )

 

At local time in London  he arrives in LA  at   8:45

 

So....local time in LA will be   12:45

 

(ii)  11hr, 10 min  =  11 + 1/6  hrs  =   67/6  hrs

 

So      Distance / Time  =  Rate

 

8880  / ( 67/6)     ≈ 795.22 km / hr
