## How to Calculate Distance with Speed and Time?

**What is Distance?**

Distance is a measurement of how far the object has travelled from its starting point during the given time period. It is same as that of the length. Distance is measured in terms of meters. This short tutorial explains you how to calculate distance with speed and time.

Let us learn here how to calculate distance with speed and time.

**Formula:**

**Distance = Speed x Time**

For example, consider Raju walks at a speed of 5 m/h and he walks for 2hrs. How far does he walk?

Step 1: Given Values,

Speed = 5 m/h

Time = 2hrs

**Step 2:** Applying the values in the formula,

Distance = Speed x Time

Distance = 5 x 2

Distance = 10 m
