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)

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

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.

Tom 2019-07-10 08:54:51

Wow, what a GREAT site! I have found that it would take 20 minutes to cycle 4 miles at about 12 mph. Cool!! :) Thanks again!

Robin 2019-07-04 01:46:36

This site is Awesome!! I love it. thank you.

Omar 2019-06-30 15:38:11

I need to know the speed at which a car can travel 120 feet at 40 miles per hour. How do i convert MPH to seconds?

Terry drives for 6 hours at 60mph. How far does he travel?

wayne 2019-06-19 20:32:21

this seems fairly accurate. some comments here not really quite right

Herman 2019-06-11 20:09:55

This work great for me

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.

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

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

Pneumoniaville 2018-08-30 21:02:49

Long math problem: I plan to walk 8 miles down a highway AND back. I can walk at fastest 4.25 miles per hour consistently (this will take a toll). The population is rural, but about 3/4ths of the way down the highway, there are a cluster of houses on one side of the road with streetlights for a quarter mile. Chances are they will be asleep, but I cannot allow myself to be seen or heard. I can attempt to leave as early as 11:00 P.M., but run a 33% risk of getting caught. This linearly drops to 0% by 1:00 A.M.. No matter what, I MUST be back by 6:00 A.M. and not a minute later. Assume I encounter one small wild animal and ten cars along my journey (I must hide from each car). At what time would it be most logical to leave?

Lucas 2018-07-13 12:43:18

Please specify underneath the digits that time is displayed the order of it. i.e. 00:00:00

Robbie 2018-06-23 18:06:33

You need to add a speed x time generator, that would help :D

Have a truck driver trying to figure out how much time energy and money is wasted every time we all have to stop for 30 minutes every damn 8 hours

Rajesh 2018-04-24 01:00:00

Please upgrade the hours to 3 digit. Now it's only showing upto 2 digits.

Octavio 2018-04-18 10:49:51

My question is how does this work? Do they use multiplication or subtraction? Division? I need to know because I need to show my work or else I will not receive credit for the answer. Thanks.

Ephraim 2018-04-04 00:25:33

Help me calculate this "a man walks at a rate of 96 paces to the minute. Each pace is 0,625m long. How long does he take to walk 5,4km?"

Perry 2018-03-31 07:41:59

You should make the website detect the region (based on IP address) of the visitor. If they are in USA, make it default to MPH and miles, instead of Kilometers. Or have the site use cookies to remember the visitors preference.

Abhay shanker 2018-03-28 18:18:35

If I covered 1.52 miles how will I know about per minute speed?
