A horse gallops a distance of 10 kilometers in a time of 30 minutes its average speed is?
Average speed = (distance covered) / (time to cover the distance)
Average speed = (10 km) / (30 minutes)
Average speed = 1/3 km/min
Most people would probably want to see it in a more convenient, more familiar unit, such as km/hour or m/second.
(10 km / 30 min) x (60 min / hour) = (10 x 60 / 30) (km-min / min-hour)
Average speed = 20 km/hour
AvgSpd = (10 km / 30 min) x (1,000 m / km) x (min / 60 sec)
AvgSpd = (10×1,000 / 30×60) (km-m-min / min-km-sec)
Averge Speed = 5.56 m/s
