How does this speed calculator work?

This is a useful calculator for all those who need to calculate the average speed registered for a given distance and time elapsed. The speed calculator is a very flexible tool as it allows 3 kinds of calculations as presented below:

  • Estimating the average speed – for a given distance and a given time. This is done by dividing the distance given by the time and applying any necessary conversion between different speed units.
  • Determining the distance for a given time frame at a certain speed. By multiply the average speed given by the time and converting between different distance units.
  • Computing the time elapsed – for a given average speed and distance, by dividing the former by the speed and making necessary conversions.
