In a flight of 600 km , an aircraft was slowed down due to bad weather. The average speed for the trip was decreased by 200 km/h & the time of flight increased by 30 minutes. Find the duration of flight.
Let the usual speed of the plane be x km/hr.
Reduced speed of the plane = (x – 200) km/hr
Time taken to reach the destination at usual speed,
Time taken to reach the destination at reduced speed,
Given, t 2 – t 1 = 30 min
We know that 60 minutes = 1 hour
Therefore, 30 minutes = 30/60 hour = 1/2 hour
Duration of the flight
Thus, the duration of the flight is .
