The average velocity of an object can be expressed as
v = ds / dt (1)
v = average velocity of object (m/s, ft/s)
ds = distance traveled (m, ft)
dt = time taken (s)
Example - Average Velocity
A car travels a distance of 60 km in one hour. Average velocity can be calculated as
v = (60 km) (1000 m/km) / ((1 hour) (3600 s/hour))
= 16.7 m/s
= (16.7 m/s) (1/1000 km/m) (3600 s/h)
= 60 km/h
Motion - velocity and acceleration, forces and torque.

Convert between speed and velocity units like m/s, km/h, knots, mph and ft/s.
