A relay race is run along a straight-line track of length 300.0 m running south to north. The first runner starts at the south end of the track and passes the baton to a teammate at the north end of the track. The second runner races back to the start line and passes the baton to a third runner who races 100.0 m northward to the finish line. The magnitudes of the average velocities of the first, second, and third runners during their parts of the race are 7.30 m/s, 7.20 m/s, and 7.80 m/s, respectively. What is the average velocity of the baton for the entire race?
