The equation used to calculate the distance something travels is given below . we know, speed = distance /time . distance = speed X time in meters /km /or any other unit of length.
Its speed is the distance it travels per unit time.
The formula for the distance traveled (assuming a constant speed) is:distance = time x speed So, any of the two factors on the right side of the equation will affect the distance.
Speed = Distance / Time
Distance and time do not, in general, affect the speed. Speed, however, can affect distance or time. Distance is directly proportional to speed, time is inversely proportional.
determine the units of a caterpillar's speed if you measure the distance the caterpillar travels in centimeters and the time it takes to travels this distance in minute
"Speed" is (the distance an object travels in some time) divided by (time to cover that distance).
Because speed = distance/time
Not quite. A distance is not a speed. A speed is the distance light travels, divided by the time. Thus, the speed of light is about 300,000 kilometers per second, or 18 million kilometers per minute.
