Important Formulas – Time and Distance


Convert kilometres per hour(km/hr) to metres per second(m/s)

x km/hrx×(5/18)m/s

Convert metres per second(m/s) to kilometres per hour(km/hr)

x m/sx×(18/5) km/hr

Average Speed

If an object travel a certain distance at a kmph and an equal distance at b kmph, then the average speed of complete travel(2ab/a+b) kmph

Relation Between Distance, Speed and Time

  1. Speed and time are inversely proportional (when distance is constant)


  1. If the ratio of the speeds of A and B is a:b, then, the ratio of the time taken to cover the same distance will be

(1/a:1/b= b:a)

  1. When two Persons A and B start journey at the same time in opposite directions from two different points P and Q respectively. After passing each other, A reaches Q in a seconds and B reaches P in b seconds. Then,

Speed of A : Speed of B =√b:√a

  1. A man Travelled a certain distance at a speed of v kmph. If it had moved v1 kmph faster, then  time taken by it would be t1 hours less. If it had moved v2 kmph slower, it would have taken t2 hours more. Then,
Speed (v)v1*v2(t1+t2)kmph

Relative Speed

  1. If two objects are moving in the same direction at v1 m/s and v2 m/s respectively where v1>v2, then their
    relative speed (v1−v2)m/s
  2. Consider two objects A and B at a distance of d metre. Suppose A and B start moving  towards in the same direction at the same time such that A moves towards B at a speed of a m/s and B moves away from A at a speed of b m/s where a>b. Then
    relative speed(a−b) m/s
    time needed for A to meet Bd/(a−b) sec
  3. If two objects are moving in opposite directions at speed of v1 m/s and v2 m/s respectively, then 
    relative speed(v1+v2) m/s
  4. Consider two objects A and B at a distance of d metre. Suppose A and B start moving towards each other in opposite direction at the same time at a m/s and b m/s respectively. Then,
    relative speed(a+b) m/s
    time needed for A and B to meet each otherd/(a+b) Sec
