"Answer:

The time taken by the sound of thunder is 6.06 s

Further explanation

Linear motion consists of 2: constant velocity motion with constant velocity and uniformly accelerated motion with constant acceleration

At constant velocity motion:

the speed of vo = v = constant

acceleration = a = 0

Δx = vt or x = xo + vt

An equation of constant velocity motion

d = distance = m

v = speed = m / s

t = time = seconds

Sound of thunder travel 2000 meters with speed 330 m/s, so :

d = 2000 m

v = 330 m/s

then time needed :

T=d/v=6.06 sec"
