    Given that speed of the cyclist = 36 kilometers per hour.

    Now question says to find the speed in meters per second.

    We know that 1 kilometer = 1000 meter

    and 1 hour = 3600 seconds

    so to convert 36 kilometers per hour into meter per second, we will multiply 36 by 1000/3600

    36*1000/3600

    =36*10/36

    =10

    Hence final answer is speed = 10 meters per second.

    That 10 meters per second means cyclist will travel 10 meters in 1 second.

    Now to find distance travelled in 5 seconds, we just need to multiply 10 and 5

    So the final answer will be 10*5 or 50 meters.
