# Average Speed Formula

Average speed is a measure of total distance covered by an object by the elapsed time. Elapsed time refers to the time taken by an object to cover the given distance. Thus average speed is also called as the distance per time ratio. It is a scalar quantity. You can use this Average Speed Formula to practically find out how much distance a vehicle has covered based on the distance (m) and time (s). Average speed is identical to that of the constant speed.

# Formula for Average Speed

#### Formula:

s=d/t

**Where,**

s = average speed (m/s)

d = distance (m)

t = time (s)

Average Speed Formula is the ratio of the distance in meters and time in seconds and hence expressed as meter per second. (m/s). It can be defined only by Magnitude.
