In general, we will find the average speed of a moving object by dividing the total distance it travels by the total time elapsed in its travel.

We can find the actual speed of the object if it moves with a constant speed during all of its travel. But if the object is something like a bus or train that makes stops along the way, we discover its average speed by dividing the total distance it travels by the total time it took to travel that distance.

The distance traveled divided by the time taken to travel the distance?

The distance traveled by an object divided by the time it takes to travel that distance is called the average speed.[ Average ] Speed = Distance / TimeFor example :A car that travels 60 miles in a time of 2 hours has an average speed of 30 miles per hour.


When a car travels from point A to point B the speed of the car varies along the way what is the total distance traveled by the car divided by the total time traveled by the car?

Speed


What is the distance traveled by an object divided by the time it takes to travel that distance called?

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.

Speed of car?

(distance the car travels) divided by (time it takes to cover that distance)


Does a car traveling the longest time have a greater distance?

No. Distance is dependent on both length of travel and speed of travel. For example, If car A leaves location X at a certain time, and travels at 200km/hr for two hours, it travels 400km. If car B leaves the same location at the same time, and travels 50km/hr for four hours, it travels 200km. As you can see, car A traveled for half the time car B traveled while doubling its total distance traveled.

What is distance divied by time?

Distance divided by time has the dimensions of speed (magnitude of velocity). The (distance an object travels) divided by (the time it takes to travel that distance) is a definition for the object's average speed.
