v=d/t

Algebra can be used to isolate for the t value:

Multiply by t: vt=d

Then, divide by v: t=d/v

Now, simply plug in the given values for the variables, and solve.

### How do you find the acceleration and initial velocity given only the distance and time?

If you are only given total distance and total time you
cannot.
If you are given distance as a function of time, then the first
derivative of distance with respect to time, ds/dt, gives the
velocity. Evaluate this function at t = 0 for initial velocity. The
second derivative, d2s/dt2 gives the acceleration as a function of
time.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Kinematics, Newtons Laws of Motion

### How do you calculate velocity?

given distance- 200km
time-5 hours
speed- distance/time
200/5
40km/hr
Divide distance by time for speed
Divide speed by distance for time
Multiply speed and time for distance
Those are three ways to make sure you have it right
Average Velocity = (change in position) / (elapsed time)
Instantaneous Velocity = [limit as elapsed time approaches 0]
(change in position) / (elapsed time)
Velocity is measured in m/s+ direction
