    Given,

    Average Speed (Vavg) = 30 km/hr

    Total distance travelled = 10 km

    Total time taken (t) =?

    We know that,

    Average Speed (Vavg) = (Total distance travelled)/ Total time taken

    Average Speed (Vavg) = (10km)/ Total time taken

    30 km/hr = (10km)/ Total time taken

    Total time taken = 10km/ (30km/hr)

    = ⅓ hr ≈ 1200 sec

    ∴ Total time taken (t) = 1200 sec.

    10 km / (30 km/h) = 1/3 of hour = 20 min

    Use the following equation.

    d = v * t

    10 = 30 * t

    t =⅓

    One hour is 3,600 seconds.

    t = ⅓ * 3,600 = 1,200 seconds

    OR

    Let’s convert the velocity from km/h to m/s and the distance from kilometers to meters.

    1 km = 1000 m

    1 hour = 3600 s

    1 km/h = 1000/3600 = 5/18 m/s

    v = 30 * 5/18 = 8⅓ m/s

    d = 10,000 meters

    d = v * t

    10,000 = 8⅓ * t

    t = 10,000 ÷ 8⅓ = 1,200 seconds

    I believe that the first method is easier than this method. Since both methods produce the same answer, this proves that it is correct. I hope this is helpful for you.

    To travel 10Km at 30 Km/hour will take about 72,000 seconds or 20 minutes or 1/3 hour.

    on average, or statistically speaking, 20 minutes.

    5 hours. There was an accident on the freeway and traffic is not moving. The exits are blocked and you just have to sit there.

    If you mean that your average speed is going to continue at 30 km/hr for the future.

    Then as speed = distance / time -> time = distance / speed

    = 10/30 = 1/3 hour.

    ( and if you wanted it in minutes you can replace the hour with 60 minutes. 1/3 of 60 = 20 minutes)

    About 20 minutes, assuming that you are in a hurry, in a traffic, or both.

    1/3 of an hour, or 20 minutes
