If you travel at 36000 MPH would you go a mile in a second?
Nope 36000 /60 minutes /60 seconds = 10 miles per second.
The minimum speed you need to go to travel 1 mile in 30 minutes is .5 miles per hour, or 44 feet per second. actually to travel one mile in 60 minutes (one mile per hour),you walk...well,one mile per hour.Therefore to walk the same distance in half the time,you have to double the speed,in this case,2 miles per hour.
60 miles per hour is 88 feet per second, so at 60 miles per hour you would travel 176 feet in two seconds. One mile is 5280 feet. One second is one 3600th of an hour. Therefore, one mile per hour is 5280 divided by 3600, or 1.4667 feet per second. Multiply that by 60 and then by 2, and you get 176 feet per two seconds at 60 miles per hour.
It depends on how fast the tornado is moving, which varies. An average tornado moves at about 30 mph, so it would take 2 minutes to travel a mile. The fastest a tornado has ever been known to travel was 73 mph, in which case it would travel a mile in about 50 seconds. At the other end, some tornadoes barely move at all.
