Concorde jet

The flying time of the Concorde jet from New York to London (5564 km) is approximately 3 hr.

(a) What is the Concorde's average speed in km/hr?

(b) The Wright brothers' first sustained powered flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, lasted 12 sec and covered approximately 120 ft. What was their average speed in km per hr?

(c) How many times faster is the Concorde than the Wrights' first powered flight?

Here is my StudyWorks solution. Does this look OK? Thank you.

I have redone the original exercise to show that your figures are correct and have added a proof.

I am unable to figure out how Alan35ajn came up with the speed of the Kitty Hawk as being 3.197084 Km/Hr.

Cheers!
