could someone show me the best way to do this.

im using python.

"Create a program that takes a time for a car going past a speed camera, the time going past the next one and the distance between them to calculate the average speed for the car in mph. The Cameras are one mile apart."

Any help is appreciated

Get someone else to do your homework

im not looking for an answer, im looking for help in how to do this.
>>
you have

two measurements one mile apart
time at first marker and second

you need speed in mph


please god don't be this retarded anon
>>
Speed = distance / time
>>

i very new to programming sorry

however this is helpful, much thanks
>>
>>51470514
Then you aren't asking a programming question, you are asking for an algorithm to calculate speed. You belong on >>>/sci/. Or even better, since you could answer that question with middle school physics: you belong on >>>/reddit/
>>
>>51470561
i understand the physics behind it.

the problem i have is translating that into a prgram
>>
>>51470639
Then you are really missing the basics, since that is one of the easiest things to program. You're given two times as arguments, calculate the speed. Look up a Python tutorial before asking to be spoonfed.

>>51470639
I don't think you do buddy.

Speed = 1 mile/(time2 - time1)

That's the physics of it, and it's almost already in python.

Step 1:
> Learn the language of the photogates

Step 2:
> Spend many years gaining their trust

Step 3:
> Impregnate the alpha female

Step 4:
> Speak to the gestating child every day and repeat its instructions: "take the time for a car to pass through two photogates, the distance between said photogates, and calculate the average speed of the car in mph."

Step 6:
> Congratulations, your new photogate child can solve all of your problems for you. And, you were one great father. Well done, anon.

Well done, indeed.
>>
> Cars speed at cam 1 and cam 2
Are these supposed to be user input values?
>>
>>51470875
I meant time
>>
>>51470483
>takes ... the distance between them
>cameras are one mile apart
why?
>>
OP youre taking too long so ill do your hw for you.

Cam1 = input (" enter time at cam 1 \n")
Cam2 = ...

Time = Cam2 - Cam1

Miles / Time (in hours).

In your case miles should be hard coded to 1
>>
>>51470639
write down the equation. configure it to take input. there you fucking go you dingus

It's basic pre-alegbra... As for the python part look up a python tutorial for literally 5 minutes.

Someone new to programming shouldn't be on /g/, but in a learning site. Pick up a book or a good website to learn a language that suits your level (which is pretty much as low as it can be from the look of things).

Pick up the language's documentation from the official websites, follow the tutorials, memorize the principles of programming, and most important part -- Exercise, exercise, exercise!! The more you do it, the easier it gets. Challenge yourself, investigate, improve. If you get frustrated, that's okay. Every programmer gets frustrated. Just try again until shit starts to make sense.

And for the love of god, don't look for a solution to your problem online without atleast spending half the day trying to solve it alone.

Python is easy shit, you'll manage if you're not retarded.
