Velocitymoving object is the distance it travels in unit time. It is usually determined by dividing a fixed distance over the period of time required to travel that distance. The word speed means about the same thing. Technically, in physics, velocity not only indicates speed, but also the direction of motion.
- 1 statute mile ÷ 1 minute = 60 miles per hour
- 40,000 kilometres ÷ 80 days = 20.83 kilometres per hour
- 2,551 nautical miles ÷ 6hr06min = 418 knots
