Average Speed Calculator
Top

Average speed is an estimation value of speed with which the object is moving or supposed to move to reach the given destination in a given time period. We generally take the destination value in miles and the time value in minues. The following Average Speed Calculator also take the values of diatance and time in miles and minutes respectively. In case if the value of distance is in kilometers and the value of time in hours, please convert them in miles and minutes to get the appropriate answers.
 

Step by Step Calculation

Step 1 :  

Observe the time value in minutes and distance value in miles.



Step 2 :  

Find the Average speed value by dividing the total distance by total time.

  1. A car travelled 200 miles with in 2 hours, What is the average speed that the car travelled?


    Step 1 :  

    Here the Distance is 200 miles.


    and the time = 2 hours = 120 minutes



    Step 2 :  

    Average speed = Total distance/ Total time.


    So, Average speed = 200/120 = 1.67 Miles per Minute.



    Answer  :  

    1.67 



  2. A train supposed to reach 500 miles of distance with in a span of 300 minutes, what is the average speed that the train should maintain to reach the destination on time.


    Step 1 :  

    Here the Distance = 500


    and the Time = 300



    Step 2 :  

    Average speed = Total distance/ Total time.


    So, Average speed = 500/300 = 1.667 Miles per Minute.



    Answer  :  

    1.667
