Distance travelled / time taken to travel the distance

There are various ways of measuring speed, the simplest is to time the vehicle over a certain distance and then work out the average speed by D/t (D = distance, t = time) Other ways are via a speed or radar gun

20 million years, if you travel at the speed of light. For other speeds, use the formula: distance = speed x time. Solving for time, time = distance / speed.

(Distance covered) and (time to cover the distance) is enough informationto calculate average speed during the time, but not enough to calculateacceleration.

Use the formula distance = speed x time. The speed of electromagnetic radiation = the speed of light = 300,000,000 meters / second.

Distance = Rate x Time Rate = Distance/Time, not Time/Distance

Distance = rate x time. Rate as in speed.

Average speed during the time = (distance) divided by (time for that distance)

Speed

Speed is considered a RATE becasue first of all, a rate is a certain distance per certain time. and Speed is a certain distance traveled per a certain amount of time.

Distance divided by time

Distance equals rate multiplied by time

Speed is the rate of change of distance with time. Velocity is the rate of change of displacement with time.

time=distance/speed(known as rate)

The rate of motion is Speed. (V=distance divided by time).

d=rt Distance=Rate (Speed) x Time This equation can be used to find Distance, Rate, and Time.

Distance = Rate x Time. So, if the Distance is increased or decreased OR/AND if the Time is increased or decreased it will change your speed.
