The flight is 14740 km and takes 20 hours. So 14,740 km / 20 hrs equals an average speed of 737 km/hr.
Hi Mom, lets plan our trip to South Africa! How fast do you think our plane will be flying?
(Mom Speaking) Lily, what do you think of going on a kayaking tour to see the crocodiles and hippos up close?
(Lily Speaking) I'm not too sure mom. What if the forces become unbalanced and we fall out of the kayak?
(Mom Speaking) Don't be silly! We will work together to make sure the boat stays balanced. As long as we both lean in the opposite directions with the same amount of force the boat will stay balanced and there will not be a change in speed or direction. Unless of course a hippopotamus comes up under us and uses his large mass to make our boat become unbalanced!
Here is the detailed plan of our kayak boat adventure:
Kayak Adventure Plan
Safety back up plan: If we come across something that is dangerous we need to slowly accelerate in the opposite direction changing our overall velocity to get to safety.
I can't wait! We are going to have so much fun!
I agree! Well......that is of course we don't get eaten by a hippopotamus.....
