What is meant by speed?

Speed can essentially be recalled to be the magnitude of the velocity of an object. And this definition remains unchanged in the day to day life as well as in kinematics. Another aspect to be kept in mind is that velocity means the rate of the change of the position of the object. Therefore, as speed turns out to be like the ones stated above, it is known to be a scalar quantity. On the other hand, if you look at the average speed then it is defined to be the distance travelled by a certain object & which is divided by duration of interval.

Instantaneous speed on the other hand is defined to be the limit of average speed because the duration of time interval happens to approach 0. In addition to this, the dimensions of speed which speed has are generally divided by time. On the other hand, the SI unit of speed is nothing but metre per second while in general use it is either kilometre per hour or miles per hour. Knot is the term for air as well as marine travel.

Formula used to convert speed

$$speed\,=\, \frac{total\, distance}{total \,time}$$

$$v=\frac{d}{t}$$

$$wherein,v= speed,distance=d \,and \,t=time$$

In the above equation distance is measured in terms of mile or km whereas time is checked in hours.

Example to convert mph to kph

$$remember \, that \, 1 \, mile \, = \, 1.6093440 \, km \, and \, km= \, 0.6214 \, miles$$

$$95 \,mph\,=\, ?\,kph$$

$$\Rightarrow \frac{95 \,mile}{1\, hour} \, \times \, \frac{1.6093440 \,km}{1\, mile}=152.887 \,kph$$

Formula used to convert speed

$$\frac{number \,of\, miles}{1\, hour}\, \times \, \frac{1.6093440 \, km}{1 \,mile}$$
