To find out how long it will take to complete the journey flying at a different speed, we can use the concept of relative speed.

First, let's convert the original speed of 400 km/h to the equivalent speed in km/min:

400 km/h = 400 km / 60 min = 6.67 km/min

Now, we can calculate the time it would take to complete the journey at the slower speed of 24 km/h:

Time = Distance / Speed

Distance remains the same, and we need to convert the slower speed to km/min:

24 km/h = 24 km / 60 min = 0.4 km/min

Using the formula:

Time = Distance / Speed

Time = Distance / (0.4 km/min)

Since the distance remains the same, the time it will take to complete the journey at a speed of 24 km/h is:

Time = 480 minutes / (6.67 km/min) = 72 minutes

Therefore, it will take 72 minutes to complete the journey flying at a speed of 24 km/h.

First, let's convert the original speed of 400 km/h to the equivalent speed in km/min:

400 km/h = 400 km / 60 min = 6.67 km/min

Now, we can calculate the time it would take to complete the journey at the slower speed of 24 km/h:

Time = Distance / Speed

Distance remains the same, and we need to convert the slower speed to km/min:

24 km/h = 24 km / 60 min = 0.4 km/min

Using the formula:

Time = Distance / Speed

Time = Distance / (0.4 km/min)

Since the distance remains the same, the time it will take to complete the journey at a speed of 24 km/h is:

Time = 480 minutes / (6.67 km/min) = 72 minutes

Therefore, it will take 72 minutes to complete the journey flying at a speed of 24 km/h.
