If the rate in the problem gives miles per hour (mph), then time must be in hours. If the time is given in minutes, divide by sixty to determine the number of hours prior to solving the equation. To find distance, use the formula: To find rate, divide both sides of the equation by time.
Keeping this in consideration, how do you calculate how fast you walk?
Take the number of minutes it took to walk 1 mile and calculate your speed. Divide 60 by the number of minutes it took you to walk 1 mile. If it took you 20 minutes to walk one mile, you walked at 3 mph, or 60 divided by 20. If you walk a mile in 15 minutes, divide 60 by 15 to get a walking speed of 4 mph.
How many miles per hour is walking?
Although walking speeds can vary greatly depending on many factors such as height, weight, age, terrain, surface, load, culture, effort, and fitness, the average human walking speed at crosswalks is about 5.0 kilometres per hour (km/h), or about 1.4 meters per second (m/s), or about 3.1 miles per hour (mph).
How long should it take you to walk a mile?
The people that normally walk very briskly might normally walk 4mph, which would get you a 15 minute mile, but faster than that is going to be uncommon, unless they walk fast for exercise or race walk (At which point the world record pace at the 20km distance works out to be a pace a bit above six minutes/mile).
