P3- Speed and Distance

HideShow resource information

Speed, distance and time

To find the speed of an object you need to know the distance it travels (in M/KM) and the time it takes ( in seconds or hours). The speed is then calculated in metres per second (M/S) or kilometers per hour (km/h). 

The greater the speed of an object the further it can travel in a certain time.

To work out speed, distance or time you use the following eqaution: 


You have to re-arrange this to find speed or time:

Speed = Distance / Time

Time = Distance /
