To calculate the average speed of /anything/ you need to know the distance it traveled (IE: 500 meters) and the time it took to travel that (IE:50 seconds)

Here's how to calculate it:

You take the total distance and divide it by the time. So in our example, a car traveled 500 meters in 50 seconds, so the speed would be:

500 meters / 50 seconds = 500/50 = 10 meters / second.

So the car would be traveling 10 meters per second.

Happy calculating
