The rate of distance traveled per unit of time, without regard to direction




The speed of a body is the rate of distance (in metres) that it travels in one second. Hence, speed unlike velocity, is total distance travelled by the body without regard to direction divided by the total time taken.

i.e Speed = Distance / time taken

Thus, the standard international (SI) unit of speed is metres per second (m/s)
