Speed/Time Graph

Speed plotted against time

If a graph is plotted of speed or velocity against time, the area under the graph gives the distance traveled.

speed velocity time graph

You can use the calculator below to summarize traveled distance:

Distance traveled: (m, ft, km, miles - depending on the combination of units used)

Example

A car travels with

  1. 25 m/s in 120 s
  2. 30 m/s in 220 s
  3. 15 m/s in 300 s

The total distance traveled by the car can be calculated as

(25 m/s) (120 s) + (30 m/s) (220 s) + (15 m/s) (300 s) = 14100 m
