## What is the synonym for distance?

SYNONYMS. interval, space, span, gap, separation, interspace, stretch, extent. length, width, breadth, depth. range, reach.

### What is distance in simple words?

Distance is the total movement of an object without any regard to direction. We can define distance as to how much ground an object has covered despite its starting or ending point.

**What is a distance in math?**

The distance between two points is the length of a straight line segment that links them. The distance of a point from a line is the length of the shortest line segment from the point to the line. This will also be perpendicular to the line.

**What is distance in physics definition?**

Distance is a scalar quantity that refers to “how much ground an object has covered” during its motion. Displacement is a vector quantity that refers to “how far out of place an object is”; it is the object’s overall change in position.

## What is formula for time and distance?

You can use the equivalent formula d = rt which means distance equals rate times time. To solve for speed or rate use the formula for speed, s = d/t which means speed equals distance divided by time. To solve for time use the formula for time, t = d/s which means time equals distance divided by speed.

### What is time and distance?

It is equal to the distance traveled divided by the time. It is possible to find any of these three values using the other two. To find the speed, distance is over time in the triangle, so speed is distance divided by time. To find distance, speed is beside time, so distance is speed multiplied by time.

**What is the ratio of distance and speed?**

The speed of thief is 60 km/hr, so he has covered 30 km in 30 minutes. The ratio of speeds of thief and police is 60: 80 or 3: 4. Excluding the first 30 minutes, the thief and the police have run for the same time. So the distance covered is in the ratio of their speeds i.e. 3: 4.

**How we can find distance?**

Learn how to find the distance between two points by using the distance formula, which is an application of the Pythagorean theorem. We can rewrite the Pythagorean theorem as d=√((x_2-x_1)²+(y_2-y_1)²) to find the distance between any two points.

## What is formula for calculating speed?

The formula for speed is speed = distance ÷ time. To work out what the units are for speed, you need to know the units for distance and time.

### What is the distance between 4 and 17?

21 units

**What is distance divided by time?**

Distance traveled divided by the time taken to travel the distance is called speed. 1. The formula for speed can be written as: speed = distance/time. Speed is distance divided by time.

**What is the unit of speed?**

Speed is a measure of how fast something is travelling. The most common units of speed are metres per second (m/s), kilometres per hour (km/h) and miles per hour (mph). In a typical car journey the speed of the car will change. The distance divided by the time will calculate the average speed of the car.

## What is difference between speed and velocity?

Speed is the time rate at which an object is moving along a path, while velocity is the rate and direction of an object’s movement. Put another way, speed is a scalar value, while velocity is a vector.

### How do you find time without distance?

Aside: in general, you can calculate time without knowing the distance (ie distance travelled) if you have enough other information. d = (v-u)T/2 and v = u+ aT (all the other equations can be derived from these two). Notice how the second equation does not include distance (s)?

**How do you solve time and distance problems?**

The formula for distance problems is: distance = rate × time or d = r × t. Things to watch out for: Make sure that you change the units when necessary. For example, if the rate is given in miles per hour and the time is given in minutes then change the units appropriately.

**How do you find acceleration?**

Acceleration (a) is the change in velocity (Δv) over the change in time (Δt), represented by the equation a = Δv/Δt. This allows you to measure how fast velocity changes in meters per second squared (m/s^2). Acceleration is also a vector quantity, so it includes both magnitude and direction.

## How do you find final speed?

Final velocity (v) of an object equals initial velocity (u) of that object plus acceleration (a) of the object times the elapsed time (t) from u to v. Use standard gravity, a = 9.80665 m/s2, for equations involving the Earth’s gravitational force as the acceleration rate of an object.

### What is the average speed of car?

Speed

Speed | Typically found |
---|---|

50 km/h | Typical car speed on residential roads or busy city roads |

80–90 km/h | Vehicle on main road, travelling reasonably fast |

100–120 km/h | Fast car on motorway, typical speed of a cheetah running, freight trains |

200–300 km/h | High speed train |

**What is the initial speed?**

Initial speed is the speed of an object at the beginning of a measurement, an intial condition. The average speed is the ratio of distance covered to the time it takes, or the average of the final and intial speeds. The change in speed is the difference between final and inital speeds.

**What is the initial velocity?**

Initial Velocity is the velocity at time interval t = 0 and it is represented by u. It is the velocity at which the motion starts. They are four initial velocity formulas: (1) If time, acceleration and final velocity are provided, the initial velocity is articulated as.

## How do you find time?

To solve for time, divide the distance traveled by the rate. For example, if Cole drives his car 45 km per hour and travels a total of 225 km, then he traveled for 225/45 = 5 hours.

### How do you find velocity with distance and time?

How to calculate velocity – speed vs velocity

- Change minutes into seconds (so that the final result would be in meters per second). 3 minutes = 3 * 60 = 180 seconds ,
- Divide the distance by time: velocity = 500 / 180 = 2.77 m/s .

**Can you have negative acceleration?**

When an object is speeding up, the acceleration is in the same direction as the velocity. Thus, this object has a positive acceleration. In Example B, the object is moving in the negative direction (i.e., has a negative velocity) and is slowing down. Thus, this object has a negative acceleration.

**What is called negative acceleration?**

The other name of negative acceleration is Retardation or Deceleration. A deceleration is opposite to the acceleration. The deceleration means the decrease in the speed of body/object movement.

## Can you have negative distance?

Distance is the total length traveled. Distance can be measured in a variety of units (inches, feet, miles, kilometers, centimeters), but the SI unit is the meter. It is a scalar quantity because it does NOT take into account direction. Distance can NEVER be negative; it is always going to be positive.

### Which is an example of negative acceleration?

(2) When we throw a ball upwards, then also negative acceleration acts on it. Thus, when the ball reaches the highest point, the velocity of the ball becomes zero.

**What are types of acceleration?**

Acceleration occurs anytime an object’s speed increases or decreases, or it changes direction. Much like velocity, there are two kinds of acceleration: average and instantaneous.

**Is distance a vector?**

Length and distance are not vector quantities (they are scalar quantities), but position and displacement are vector quantities (at least according to common terminological conventions).

## What is difference between positive and negative acceleration?

Mathematically, a negative acceleration means you will subtract from the current value of the velocity, and a positive acceleration means you will add to the current value of the velocity.

### What is a positive acceleration?

A positive acceleration means an increase in velocity with time. negative acceleration means the speed reduces with time. its a retardation. If the speed is increasing, the car has positive acceleration. When the car slows down, the speed decreases.
