Distance Traveled defines how much path an object has covered to reach its destination in a given period. The formula for distance travelled is given
d = distance travelled
v = Velocity
t = time taken to travel
The distance-travelled formula can be applied to calculate the distance of driving a car or swimming laps in a pool. While driving a car, the distance will be calculated in miles or kilometres, the rate is in miles per hour or kilometres per hour, and time is in hours. While swimming laps in a pool, the distance will be calculated in laps.
Question 1: A heavily loaded truck travels at a velocity of 60 miles per hour. Calculate the total time taken by the truck to travel a distance of 200 miles?
Given: Velocity = 60 miles per hour
Displacement d = 200 miles
displacement d = vt
The time taken is given by
t = d/v
t = 3.33 hours
