How fast is a person moving?

Movement is life. But with what speed a person is moving, this is a curious question. On average, we develop speed when walking up to 5-6 km / h. That will allow you to walk around the stadium more than 10 times in a quiet walking pace. There is even an Olympic discipline called sport walking. Athletes of this sport develop speeds, of course, much higher, they can reach speeds of more than 13 km / h. This is not a quiet movement, but also not running. It is worth noting that an important condition for walking is the constant contact of one foot with the surface.

As for the average person, who is in active running, his average speed ranges from 15 to 20 km / hour. Although, according to some scientists, the biological limit of human capabilities allows us to reach speeds of 60 km / h, though this is still far from us.But the maximum in the tug of 48.67 km / h is our strength. This proves in practice the fastest man on the planet Earth, the Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt. Usain runs 100 meters in 9.63 seconds, which is 37.38 km / h on average.
