Calculating Speed
Worksheet
​
Speed formula: ​ v = d/t
Where ​v = speed (or velocity), d = distance, t = time
Reminder:​ ​We are measuring speed in​ kilometers
Per hour (kph).
Example​: A bicycle has travelled 10 kilometers in 66 minutes. What is its speed in kph?
What are we trying to find?
Speed (v)
Solve the problem:
​ 0km​/​1.1hours
1. v = 1
What formula do we need to use?
V = D/T
What do we know?
D = 10km
T = 66minutes
What do you need to convert?
66 minutes/60 = 1.1 hours
2. v =​ 9.09kph
