Speed

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Speed, abbreviated as s, is the rate of change or distance with time.  Speed is a scalar quantity having no direction.  Speed is not velocity, they do not mean the same thing.

 

speed formula

\(\large{ s = \frac{ d }{ t }   }\) 
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ s }\) = speed \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\)  \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\) 
\(\large{ d }\) = distance \(\large{ ft }\) \(\large{ m}\)
\(\large{ t }\) = time \(\large{ sec }\) \(\large{ s }\)
