The Fiesta then completes the first lap in time t and the second lap in t/3 for a total of 4/3t for 2 laps, or 2/3 t average per lap, when you'd need 1/2 t average to have the speed double."I drove a lap of a circuit in my Ford Fiesta at 60 mph, how fast do I have to go in the second lap to double my speed?"
Second lap speed = x.
Average speed = (60 + x)/2 = 120
x = 180.
You are one of many who don't know how to compute average speed. Average speed is total distance/total time.
You are spending only a fourth of your time going the fast speed, and yet you are averaging it equally with the time spent going 60, a classic mistake.
