Displacement divided by time is VELOCITY. Definition of velocity is rate of change of displacement with respect to time. Suppose a object gets displaced by 5m in 2 seconds, its velocity will be5/2=2.5 m/s(m/s is its unit).It means that object will go 2.5m in 1 second. Let us take oone more example. Say a object has moved by 6m in 12 seconds, Its velocity will be:6/12=0.5m/s Means it will cover a distance of 0.5m in one second.
