## What is the relationship between distance and speed?

Speed tells us how fast something or someone is travelling. You can find the average speed of an object if you know the distance travelled and the time it took. The formula for speed is speed = distance ÷ time.

**What is the difference between speed and speed?**

Speed is the rate of change of distance whereas velocity is the rate of change of displacement. Speed can never be zero but the velocity can be positive, negative or zero….Speed & Velocity.

Speed | Velocity |
---|---|

Speed is a scalar quantity | Velocity is a vector quantity. |

### What is the difference between speed and distance covered by a car?

The speed of a moving body is the distance travelled by it in unit time. If the distance is in km and time is in hours, then the speed is km/hr.

**Is time and distance the same?**

Time is a distance in the temporal dimension. Velocity is the measure of the amount of distance an object covers in a given amount of time.

#### What is the difference between speed and displacement?

Displacement is the vector difference between the ending and starting positions of an object. Speed is a scalar, which describes the total distance travelled by some object during some time interval. Speed is sometimes equal to the magnitude of a velocity vector, but not always.

**What is difference between speed and velocity Class 9?**

Speed is defined as the distance travelled by a body in a given interval of time. Velocity is defined as the displacement of a body in a given interval of time. It is a scalar quantity. It is a vector quantity.

## What is the difference between speed and average speed class 7?

Speed is the rate of change of position of an object with time. The average speed of an object in an interval of time is the distance travelled by the object divided by the duration of the intervalHence, Unit of Distance is meter or Kilometer and that of time is second or hour.

**How can we distinguish the speed time and distance?**

Distance = Speed × Time .
