# Speed Converter

This speed calculator is a tool that allows you to calculate the average speed of a moving item based on the distance traveled over a certain period. For example, if you want to know how to find the average speed when driving your bike or going for a fast jog, this calculator will be helpful.

Speed refers to how quickly movement happens or distance in proportion to time. One method of quantifying the speed of a moving item, such as miles per hour (mph), may not be relevant. However, because distance and time are vital when discussing motion and speed, we must understand the various units used when discussing time, speed, and distance.

### How to calculate the speed?

Speed and velocity, where one is measured with a direction, and the other is estimated based on the object's position, are both important when doing calculations. The derived unit for both is the meter per second, according to the system of units. To measure speed, you must first determine how fast something is moving you, then use a simple formula: distance divided by time. When an object moves in a straight line, linear calculations are necessary, whereas velocity requires a direction.

### How to use the Speed calculator tool?
