### How can you calculate the distance traveled by object?

Distance = time x speed

### What is the distance traveled by an object divided by the time in which the distance was traveled without identifying the direction traveled?

Speed describes the distance traveled by an object divided by the time in which the distance was traveled, if the direction is not specified.

### What object would be necessary to determine the speed of an object?

The distance it travels and how long it took to travel that far. To calculate speed you do (total distance traveled)/(total time taken)

NO

### Which of the following do you calculate when you divide the total distance traveled by the total traveled time?

Speed = Distance/Time

### Formula to calculate work in physics?

W=Fd Where F is the force on the object and d is that distance that the object traveled. If F is in Newtons and d is in meters, then works will be in joules.

distance

No, you cannot.

### What information would be necessary to determine the speed of an object?

The distance it travels and how long it took to travel that far. To calculate speed you do (total distance traveled)/(total time taken)

### What does it mean about your displacement is equal to the distance you traveled?

displacement is equal to the distance you traveled when the object is moving at shortest path

### How do you calculate the horizontal distance traveled by an object if you are given the horizontal velocity and time in the air?

You cannot because you do not know how long before the object falls to the ground and so stops moving.

### How does distance vary with the square of time?

For a free-falling object, you can calculate the total distance traveled, given the amount of time. The distance of the fall is proportional to the square of the time elapsed. In general, distance can be found by the relationship between acceleration and time squared. If we let a be acceleration, which can be gravity if you want, and t be time, then we have: The distance traveled = 1/2 * a * t2 The distance traveled = 1/2 * g* t2
