All of the

**calculations**in this section will be worked out using the distance,**speed**and time**equation**. An easy way to remember the distance,**speed**and time**equations**is to put the letters into a triangle. The triangles will help you remember these 3 rules: Distance =**Speed**x Time.How do you measure the speed of a moving object?

The

**speed of an object**is how fast or slow it's moving. You can**calculate speed**using the**equation**'**speed**= distance/time'. Distance-time graphs illustrate how an**object**moves. They show how the distance moved from a starting point changes over time.1

## How do you calculate work done?

The

**work**is calculated by multiplying the force by the amount of movement of an object (W = F * d). A force of 10 newtons, that moves an object 3 meters, does 30 n-m of**work**. A newton-meter is the same thing as a joule, so the units for**work**are the same as those for energy – joules.2

## What is the formula for work?

Whenever '

**work**' is done energy is transferred from one place to another. The amount of**work**done is expressed in the**equation**:**work**done = force x distance. Power is expressed in the**equation**: power =**work**done / time taken.3

## What is the formula for calculating average speed?

The

**average speed**of an object is the total distance traveled by the object divided by the elapsed time to cover that distance. It's a scalar quantity which means it is defined only by magnitude. A related concept,**average**velocity, is a vector quantity.4

## How long does it take to drive a mile at 60 mph?

**One hour**has 60 minutes in it,if you are traveling at 60 miles per hour means 60 miles in 60 minute that is one mile in

**one minute**.

## How do you find the average?

The mean is the

**average**of the numbers. It is easy to calculate: add up all the numbers, then divide by how many numbers there are. In other words it is the sum divided by the count.6

## What is the difference between the velocity and the speed of an object?

**Speed**is the distance traveled by an object where as,

**velocity**is distance traveled by an object per unit time

**in a**particular direction.

**Speed**is a scalar quantity where as

**velocity**is a vector quantity.

## What is the formula for acceleration?

**Acceleration Formula**.

**Acceleration**is a measure of how quickly the velocity of an object changes. So, the

**acceleration**is the change in the velocity, divided by the time.

**Acceleration**has a magnitude (a value) and a direction.

8

## How do you work out the acceleration?

**The easiest way to do these calculations is to work out the difference between the final velocity and the initial velocity, then divide by the time taken.**

- For example, a car accelerates from 25 m/s to 35 m/s in 5 s.
- Its velocity changes by 10 m/s (35 – 25)
- So its acceleration is 10 ÷ 5 = 2 m/s
^{2}

## What is the difference between speed and velocity?

For instance, you must describe an object's velocity as being

**55 mi/hr**, east. This is one of the essential differences between speed and velocity. Speed is a scalar quantity and does not keep track of direction; velocity is a vector quantity and is direction aware.10

## How do you find the force of an object?

**Calculate the force required for an 8 pound wagon to accelerate at 7 m/s**

^{2}.- First, convert all your units to SI. One pound is equal to .453 kg, so you'll need to multiply that value by your 8 pounds to determine the mass.
- Multiply your new value for the mass (3.62 kg) by your acceleration value (7 m/s
^{2}).

## What is the formula used to calculate speed?

The speed of an object is how fast or slow it's moving. You can calculate speed using the equation 'speed =

**distance**/time'.**Distance**-time graphs illustrate how an object moves. They show how the**distance**moved from a starting point changes over time.12

## What is the formula of force?

The formula for force says force is equal to mass (m) multiplied by acceleration (a). If you have any two of the three variables, you can solve for the third. Force is measured in Newtons (N), mass in kilograms (kg), and acceleration in meters per

**second**squared ( m/s2 ).13

## What is the formula to find the speed?

**Distance**Speed Time Formula. Speed is a measure of how quickly an object moves from one place to another. It is equal to the

**distance**traveled divided by the time. It is possible to find any of these three values using the other two.

14

## What is the formula for displacement?

Displacement equals the original

**velocity**multiplied by time plus one half the**acceleration**multiplied by the**square**of time. Here is a sample problem and its solution showing the use of this equation: An object is moving with a**velocity**of 5.0 m/s.15

## What is the formula for time?

An easy way to remember the

**distance**,**speed**and time equations is to**put**the letters into a triangle. The triangles will help you remember these 3 rules:**Distance**=**Speed**x Time. Time =**Distance**/**Speed**.16

## How do you calculate the average speed?

**Method 2**

**Given Multiple Distances in Different Amounts of Time**

- Assess what information you are given. Use this method if you know:
- Set up the formula for average speed.
- Determine the total distance.
- Determine the total time.
- Divide the total distance traveled by the total time spent traveling.

## How do you get the speed of an object?

**Speed**is the rate at which an

**object's**position changes, measured in meters per second. The equation for

**speed**is simple: distance divided by time. If the

**speed**of the

**object**is constant, you'll be able to

**calculate**that constant

**speed**. If the

**speed**is changing, you can find the average

**speed**during the motion.

18

## What is a unit of speed?

Speed has the dimensions of distance divided by time. The

**SI unit**of speed is the metre per**second**, but the most common unit of speed in everyday usage is the kilometre per hour or, in the US and the UK, miles per hour. For air and marine travel the knot is commonly used.19

## How do you calculate the speed?

A: For a body moving at a uniform velocity you can

**calculate**the**speed**by dividing the distance traveled by the amount of time it took, for example one mile in 1/2 hour would give you 2 miles per hour. If the velocity is non-uniform all you can say is what the average**speed**is. Same**calculation**.20

## What is the measurement of velocity?

**Velocity**is a physical vector quantity; both magnitude and direction are needed to define it. The scalar absolute value (magnitude) of

**velocity**is called "speed", being a coherent derived unit whose quantity is

**measured in**the SI (metric system) as metres per second (m/s) or as the SI base unit of (m⋅s

^{−}

^{1}).
