About Speed Distance Time Calculator

This online calculator tool can be a great help for calculating time basing on such physical concepts as speed and distance. Therefore, in order to calculate the time, both distance and speed parameters must be entered. For the speed, you need to enter its value and select speed unit by using the scroll down menu in the calculator. For distance, you should enter its value and also select the proper length measurement unit from the scroll down menu. You'll receive the result in standard time format (HH:MM:SS).

Time Speed Distance Formula

Distance is equal to speed × time. Time is equal Distance/Speed.

Distance = Speed × Time
Speed = Distance / Time
Time = Distance / Speed

Calculate Time from Distance and Speed Examples

Example 1:
Speed: 50 mile per hour (km/h)
Distance: 70 miles

Time = Distance / Speed
Time = 70 km / (50 km/h)
Time = 1.4 h

1 hour = 60 minutes
0.4 h = 0.4 × 60
0.4 h = 24 minutes

Time = 1 hour 24 minutes
Time = 01:24:00 (HH:MM:SS)

Example 2:
Speed: 40 kilometer per hour (km/h)
Distance: 60 miles

Time = Distance / Speed
Time = 60 miles / (40 km/h)

1 mile = 1.609344 km

Time = 60 × 1.609344 km / (40 km/h)
Time = 96.56064 km (40 km/h)
Time = 2.414016 h

Hours = 2 h

1 hour = 60 minutes
0.414016 h = 0.414016 × 60
0.414016 h = 24.84096 minutes
Minutes = 24 min

1 minute = 60 second
0.84096 min = 0.84096 × 60 sec
0.84096 min = 50 sec (approximately)
Seconds = 50 sec

Time = 2 hours 24 minutes 50 seconds
Time = 02:24:50 (HH:MM:SS)

I need the calculator to give me the distance by using my speed & time

Nina 2020-06-09 08:14:26

Thank you it really helped with drivers ed homework!

Diana 2020-06-01 11:29:11

Super useful. I needed to calculate how long would a coach travelling around 4mph would take to travel 9Km! Great stuff!

Josh 2020-05-25 06:21:59

this is really helpful thank you

It really helps me

Luka 2020-05-07 10:56:08

This is great. I used it to help me figure out how long it would take for me to get to an ice cream place. I went at 3.5 mph and it was almost exact.

Joe 2020-04-23 10:41:39

This better be right You travel 4 miles down a road you get there in 2 hours what is the speed.

Ellie 2020-04-22 10:51:26

This wasn't so helpful for me. A train travels from Washington DC to New York (225 miles). The train departs at 4:55 PM and arrives in New York at 7:55 PM. What is the average speed of the train? can't solve it on this..

joe 2020-04-16 09:55:28

this helped me a lot with my math problem! thanks again

Marshall 2020-04-08 12:11:06

great for calculating your speed when flying

How long will it take to travel 15km on gravel roads and whats the best speed?

Tom 2020-01-17 08:08:31

I would like my default settings for distance and time to be in miles instead kilometers when I open the app. How can I make this happen on my Samsung 8 phone?

LABEL 2020-01-06 16:20:47

Thank you so much! This helped me with homework extension. You are responsible for my future 4.0

Super easy and simple app to work with. Best on the web and well done bravo.

Mel 2019-12-06 13:02:03

Why are all the examples using km for speed and miles for distance that’s just confusing it I’m traveling in miles I’m driving in mph and vice versa.

Secondly the plane stopwatch timing by lines on the road or road side markers or using telephone poles all the ways I’ve been told they do it is easy to argue because they can not guarantee any of those points distances are what they say they are. Mistakes are made by road crews all the time. Hell if an officer isn’t trained and doesn’t calibrate his radar equipment before every shift you can beat a radar ticket. Arguing the many flaws from a plane is easy lol.

Stencil beanapom 2019-11-24 14:10:49

I have much appreciation for the application. Bless you Jesus.

Thank You So Much!! Everyday, this is helping me with my school work and assignments. I recommend using this. TY!!

Carla911 2019-09-04 18:27:14

Regarding the comment of speeding tickets, it's better to pay it off at one price. When you take it to court, sometimes the Officer enhances the speed, plus the Judge has to add on the court cost, ticket anything extra.
If you did it, accept it, apologize and ask if they can lower the speed to avoid the extra cost/take the class.
Good luck.

Jackelynne 2019-08-18 20:43:48

Thanks! It helped a lot, needed to figure out if I had time to get breakfast before my class started! 10/10

I want to how do you convert MPH to seconds here? It would nice if you can do an update on this.

Races in athletics are started by the sound of a starting gun, traditionally located to one side of the
first lane. But are runners disadvantaged if they are further away from the person holding the
starting gun?
Using algebra, investigate whether the distance from the starting gun will impact on a runner’s ability
to win a race. Explore which runners would be most disadvantaged if the race was won by 0.1 seconds
or 0.01 seconds.

Eric 2019-05-20 14:41:04

...PLUS, the car cop can't really testify since he did not witness the process of speed determination, actual method used, or if there were any issues impeding the actual timing. Wishy-washy.

Eric 2019-05-20 14:35:44

That plane crap doesn't hold water in court if you just fight it for accurate plane air speed, angle viewed, and human negligence on starting and stopping the "stopwatch". Easy to win it. You just have to go to court is all.

@seth 2019-02-18 14:11:59
if you are in a plan going 140 miles an hour how do you make observation from an airplane to determine the speed of a car on the road.

If you drive along some roads you occasionally see short white lines crossing the roadway or just a white or yellow mark along the side of it. A short distance later, you see the same mark. The guys in the airplane can see these marks, your traveling car, and know how far apart those marks are. He starts a stopwatch when you pass the first mark and stops the stopwatch when you pass the second one. Distance divided by time equals speed. If you are traveling too fast, the guy in the plane will call ahead to his police buddy and describe your car and tell him when you pass him. You get pulled over, the car cop AND the guy in the airplane testify against you in court.

Phil 2019-04-08 19:15:25

How far will an object travel if its speed is 196,000 mph in 7 hours and 20 minutes?

James 2019-03-10 07:56:22

For 36 min a bicycler has traveled 6 km. For 2h and 30min, if he's moving with the same speed, he's gonna travel:

a)20km b) 25km
c)30km d) 35km

Chavez 2019-03-03 15:44:05

My dog ran 20 kilometres in 38 minutes what is the speed

Martha 2019-03-02 19:37:59

Absolutely amazing!!!!
It is accurate with the examples, thanks :)

Calvin 2019-02-27 09:25:23

A bus driver covers a certain distance in 3 hours at an average speed of 85 km/h. How long will it take to cover the distance at an average speed of 75 km/h

seth 2019-02-18 14:11:59

if you are in a plan going 140 miles an hour how do you make observation from an airplane to determine the speed of a car on the road.

needing speed = distance /time
Distance = speed x time
Time = distance/speed
