Total distance traveled / time

Divide the distance by the time. The equation is rate x time=distance. So Rate is equal to distance divided by time. In this case it is 930/11 about 84.5 km/hr

the rate of speed

The formual to use is RxT=D or Rate(speed) multiplied by Time(time traveled convert as necessary is equal to the distance traveled. Therefore R=45kph mutiplied by time T=3 Hours equals Distance 135km or 45kphx3hours=135k traveled

How this is answered for a person depends on what level of math the questioner is. But here is a basic answer:The speedometer measures the speed (rate of change of distance traveled with respect to time) at any particular point in time. In Calculus, it would be said that the speedometer shows the derivative of the function for distance traveled.Note that speed is a scalar, and therefore doesn't depend on direction: distance traveled is not the same as position, since you could drive in a circle and travel a distance of several miles without getting more than a mile from the starting point, for example.

velocity

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

No, you cannot.

That is called speed, or - if the direction is also relevant - velocity.

velocity means the distance traveled in certain time and in a certain direction. Therefore: velocity is the result of dividing the traveled distance by time taken, and adding a direction to it.

velocity

A speed. If the direction is relevant, a velocity.

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

(a distance traveled) divided by (time to travel the distance) is known as a "speed" .
