A way of understanding velocity is by using an every day example. In the US, we use the units miles/hour (miles per hour). This tells us that velocity is a distance divided by a time. For example, "I drove 50 miles in one hour".
The formula for velocity is as follows:
Where (v) stands for velocity, (d) stands for distance, and (t) stands for time.
In this example our distance is 300 km and our time is 5 hrs. We can then plug these numbers in our equation for velocity:
v=(300 km)/(5 hrs)
The velocity is 60 kilometers per hour.
I hope this helped!
