# Speed Time and Distance Questions and Answers

**Speed, Time and Distance Questions and Answers**

On this page we are going to discuss Speed, Distance and Time Questions and Answers along with basic definition to help students understand the topic and prepare well.

Speed Definition
Speed is defined as the distance traveled in relation to the time it took to travel that distance . Speed is a scalar Quantity since it only has magnitude and no direction.

Time Definition
Time is defined as the interval between two events. Time can be in hours(hr), minutes(mins) or seconds(s)

Distance Definition
Distance is defined as the space between two points or two objects.

**Relationship Between Speed Time & Distance**

**Speed = Distance/Time –**This means Speed is equal to Distance covered by time taken. It shows us how fast or slow an object moves- Speed is Inversely proportional to Time and directly proportional to Distance, Time being constant in this case.
**Distance = Speed X Time**, and**Time = Distance / Speed**, as speed increases distance is covered faster and hence time decreases, and vice versa. Using the above formulas any basic problems can be solved, and unit conversion must be kept in mind.

Speed, Distance and Time can be expressed in different units:

**Units of Speed ,Time and Distance**

**Time:** seconds(s), minutes (min), hours (hr)

**Distance: **(meters (m), kilometers (km), miles, feet

**Speed:** m/s, km/hr
