Speed Distance Time Calculator
The Speed Distance Time Calculator calculates the average speed at which an object is moving based on the given distance and time. It can also calculate distance based on time and average speed, or time based on distance and average speed. During the calculation, you can freely change the units used for the calculation and in which the result will be displayed. For example, you can enter the distance in kilometers (km) and display the result in miles per hour (mph).
How do I use the Speed Calculator?
Speed Calculator is an online tool that allows you to easily perform three actions:
- calculate average speed - by specifying the distance and the time that the object traveled, you can find the average speed at which it moved along the road;
- calculate distance - to find out the distance covered by the object, you need to specify its average speed and time;
- calculating time - if you have the time the object moved and the distance it traveled, you can know the time it took.
If you want to perform three different actions, remember to first lock the field you want to count (distance (s), time (t) or speed (v)). You can do this by clicking on the open padlock icon . When the padlock is closed , the field to be calculated is also grayed out. It is not possible to edit the data in this field.
Speed - formula
Speed is a physical quantity that describes how fast the position of a body changes relative to the reference system.
The formula for calculating average speed is as follows:
v = speed,
s = path or distance, and
t = time.
The SI unit of speed is meters per second (m/s), or
Converting speed units
Once the speed has been calculated, you can change the units in which the result is displayed. At your disposal are:
- [m/s] - meters per second
- [km/h] - kilometers per hour
- [mph] - miles per hour
- [kt] - knots (i.e. nautical miles per hour)
- [ma] - mach (i.e. speed of sound)
- [c] - speed of light (in a vacuum)
Where can you use a speed calculator?
A speed calculator can be a useful tool in many areas, especially where measuring and calculating speed is important. Here are some places where a speed calculator can be useful:
- Automotive: A speed calculator is essential for drivers and car enthusiasts. It allows you to convert speed between different units, such as kilometers per hour (km/h), miles per hour (mph), or meters per second (m/s). It is also useful for calculating the time it takes to travel a certain distance at a certain speed.
- Sports: In sports, a speed calculator can be used to analyze and compare the performance of athletes. For example, in track and field, a speed calculator can be used to calculate the average running speed based on time and distance. It can also be used in water sports, aviation and cycling.
- Education: The Speed Calculator is also a useful educational tool for teaching physics and mathematics. It allows students to understand and experiment with different units of speed and to calculate time and distance based on speed.
The Speed Calculator is a simple and practical tool for those who need to convert and analyze speeds in various fields. It makes it easy to convert between units of speed, calculate time and distance, and analyze performance in different contexts.
