In Prelim Standard Math, speed is the rate that compares the distance travelled to the time taken (measured in km/h).
What is the Distance, Speed and Time Triangle?
The video below explains how to use the triangle to work out distance, speed and time within a problem.
The following video explains the triangle in a simpler concept, however, uses an American metric system. The same concepts found in the triangle still apply.
What is Stopping Distance?
The stopping distance is the distance a vehicle travels from the time a driver sees an event occurring until the time it takes for a vehicle to be brought to a stop. The following video explains the stopping distance formula and how to apply it.
