• Slides: 16 Speed, Distance & Time Speed, Distance, Time Calculations Bell Work You Need: Colored Pencils Science Folder Science Notebook Everything else goes into the back. Start a new page in your notebook. Title it “Speed” What is speed? How do you think scientists define it? If you were to put speed into an equation what would it look like? Speed = ______ Scientifically Speed is how fast something is going or the distance something moves in a given amount of time. Speed = distance -----time Units of Speed is measured in miles per hour Speed is also measured in kilometers per hour Measurement Unit Speed Miles/Hour or Km/Hour Distance Miles/Kilometers Time Hours Wait. . How do we get minutes into hours? Jack runs around the 1 mile track in 7 minutes. What is his speed? - Speed is measured here in miles/hour - How do we get 7 minutes into hours? - 7 minutes 7/60 =. 12 hours 1 hour 60 minutes You Try 15 mins = _____ Hours . 25 Hours You Try 30 minutes = _____ hours . 5 hours You Try 3 hours 45 minutes = _____ hours 3. 75 Hours 3 Formulas D S T The 3 formulas for Speed, Time & Distance: Speed = Distance Time Solving for Speed Time = Distance Speed Solving for Time Distance = Speed x Time Solving for Distance D Remember them from this triangle: S T A windsurfer travelled 28 km in 1 hour 45 mins. Calculate his speed. Speed = = Distance Time 28 1. 75 D S T 1 hour 45 mins = 16 km/h Answer: His speed was 16 km / hour A salesman travelled at an average speed of 50 km/h for 2 hours 30 mins. How far did he travel? Distance = Speed x Time = 50 x 2 • 5 D S T 2 hour 30 mins = 125 km Answer: He travelled 125 km A train travelled 555 miles at an average speed of 60 mph. How long did the journey take? Distance Time = Speed D S = 555 60 = 9 • 25 hours = 9 hours 15 mins T Answer: It took 9 hours 15 minutes Try It! Your dad traveled 75 miles in 2. 5 hours.
