How do you find the speed of a object?

Speed is an absolute unchanging linear distance crossed per unit time. Speed is not the same thing as velocity, and an object cannot exhibit a "rate of speed" since rate is velocity. Speed is determined by measuring the distance traversed over a specific unit of time. Since the object almost always is not at a constant speed, we are really estimating the average speed.
