Speed describes the distance traveled by an object divided by the time in which the distance was traveled, if the direction is not specified.

To determine the speed of an object, one has to know the distance the object has traveled (in meters) and the time it has taken for the object to travel that distance (in seconds). To calculate speed, take the distance traveled and divide it by the time. To determine velocity, simply take the speed and determine which direction the object was travelling.

If you divide he distance by the time, and take into account the direction traveled, you will get the AVERAGE velocity during the time considered.

speed

no, you need to know its initial velocity to determine this; if initial velocity is zero then distance is 1/2 acceleration x time squared

a car or any automotive going in circles, it has no direction 8)

To determine average speed, you need to know what distance the object traveled in meters over how long it took the object to travel that distance in seconds.

Velocity Velocity= distance/time V=d/t

If you know the distance traveled in a certain time you can calculate the speed. Distance traveled/time = speed. ex. 100 miles traveled in 10 hours 100/10 = 10 miles per hour

You divide the distance by the time.You divide the distance by the time.You divide the distance by the time.You divide the distance by the time.

You can determine the rate of motion. For example mph (miles per hour) is found by multiplying miles traveled by the time (hours) in motion.this formula isRate * Time = Distance

NO

The distance traveled by an object divided by the time it takes to travel that distance is called the average speed, r, if you are also considering its direction, its average velocity. Velocity = distance in one direction/time Speed = distance/time For example: A car that travels 60 miles in a time of 2 hours has a speed of 30 miles per hour.

Displacement is how far the object is from the starting point, while distance traveled is the how far the object traveled all together. -Eric P

Displacement can either be positive or negative depending upon the direction of the distance traveled by an object with respect to the reference point.

Distance

distance

Distance = time x speed

displacement is equal to the distance you traveled when the object is moving at shortest path

No. For you to know the distance you need to know the time the object has been travelling and a function describing the speed of the object for the time it has been travelling. A direction is not required. correct but you missed direction can affect speed as climbing altitude would get slowed by gravity

distance

The distance it travels and how long it took to travel that far. To calculate speed you do (total distance traveled)/(total time taken)

The forces acting on the object determine the its direction. Velocity tells you the speed and direction of an object.

Speed.

Distance traveled divided by the time it took.
