The rate at which something moves or operates.
It is the rate of change of distance with time.
A truck travels \(132\text{ km}\) in \(22\text{ hours}\).
What is the speed of the truck?
Answer:
We’re looking for speed, the distance should be divided by time.
\(\begin{aligned} \space \text{Speed}&= \dfrac{\text{Distance}}{\text{Time}} \\\\& = \dfrac{132 \space\text{km}}{22 \space \text{h}} \\\\&= 6 \space \text{km/h}. \end{aligned}\)
