Formula to Calculate the Distance = Speed * Time

### Distance Word Problems Examples

1. A train moves at a speed of 45 km/hr. How far will it travel in 30 minutes?

Solution:

Speed of the Train = 45 kmph

Time = 30 min = 1/2 hr

Distance = Speed * Time

= 45Kmph*1/2 hr

= 22.5 Km

Therefore, the train travels a distance of 22.5 km

2. If a motorist moves with a speed of 40 km/hr and covers the distance from place A to B in 2 hours, find the distance between places A and B?

Solution:

Speed = 40 km/hr

Time taken to travel from Place A to Place B = 2 hrs

Distance = Speed*Time

= 40kmph*2 hr

= 80 km

Therefore, the distance between places A and B is 80 km.

3. How much father can an interstate bus go traveling 80 km/hr rather than 50 km/hr in 3 hours?

Solution:

Distance = Speed *Time

If Speed = 80 km/hr

Time = 3 hrs

Distance = 80*3

= 240 km

If Speed = 50 km/hr

Time = 3 hrs

Distance = Speed * Time

= 50*3

= 150 km

Difference between Distances = 240 km – 150 km

= 90 km

4. Sound travels at a speed of 1100 km in one hour. How many meters will it travel in one second?

Solution:

Speed = 1100 kmph

To convert kmph to m/sec multiply with 5/18

= 1100*5/18

= 305.55 m/sec

5. A car travels at a speed of 72 km/hr. How many meters will it travel in 1 second?

Solution:

Speed = 72 km/hr

To convert kmph to m/sec multiply with 5/18

= 72*5/18

= 20 m/sec

6. Mohan drives a car at a uniform speed of 40 km/hr, find how much distance is covered in 120 minutes?

Solution:

Speed = 40 km/hr

Time = 120 minutes = 2 hrs

Distance = Speed*Time

= 40 km/hr*2 hr

= 80 km

7. A car takes 2 hours to cover a distance if it travels at a speed of 30 kmph. What should be its speed to cover the same distance in 1 hour?

Solution:

Speed = 30 kmph

Time = 2hrs

Distance = Speed*TIme

= 30 kmph*2 hr

= 60 Km

Speed = ?

Distance = 60 km

Time = 1 hr

Speed = Distance/Time

= 60 km/1 hr

= 60 kmph
