Weight has same dimension and unit as force. Distance has same dimension and unit as displacement. So weight * distance has same dimension and unit as force * displacement.

Force * displacement is work done by the force. Work divided by time to do the work is Power. So weight * distance divided by time also has same dimension and unit as Power although it is not power.

S.I. unit of weight * distance divided by time is Newton *meter/second or Nms-1 (in abbr.)

It's dimensions are 1, 2, -3 in mass, length and time respectively.

Note that given quantity's unit can't be joule/second or watt because weight * distance is not work done, only unit and dimension are same1 .

1. Two physical quantities may have same dimensions and units but that doesn't mean they refer to same quantity.

Speed equals time divided by distance?

Distance = Rate x Time Rate = Distance/Time, not Time/Distance


I understand distance divided by time is the formula to calculate work How can I show an example to apply the formula?

Work is not defined as distance/time, but rather: work= force x distance Distance divided by time will give you velocity. Displacement (or distance traveled) = velocity x time


Time equals distance speed formulae?

Speed = Distance divided by Time (S = D/T)Time = Distance divided by Speed (T = D/S)Distance = Speed times Time (D = S x T)


What does Weight x distance equal?

weight x distance = work


How do you find wavelength when distance is given?

Wavelength = speed divided by frequency. Speed = distance divided by time. Therefore: Wavelength = distance divided by (frequency x time). You therefore need to know the frequency of the wave and the time it takes to travel in unit time.


How is speed time and distance calculated?

Simply remember this triangleD-----------S x TThe D represents DistanceThe S represents SpeedThe T represents TimeDistance divided by Time = Speed. (120 miles divided by 2 hours = 60 mph)Distance divided by Speed = Time. (120 miles divided by 60 mph = 2 hours)Speed multiplied by Time = Distance. (60 mph x 2 hours = 120 miles)


What is The equation for distance times travel?

Distance = speed x timeDistance = speed x timeDistance = speed x timeDistance = speed x time


How do i solve distance rate time promblems?

The formula is Distance=Rate x Time (or distance equals rate multiplied by time). When you take this into account, you can manipulate it to solve for rate or time instead of distance. In other words, you could rewrite it as Rate= Distance/Time (rate equals distance divided by time) and Time= Distance/Rate (time equals distance divided by rate) in case they ask for what the Rate or Time is instead of Distance.


How are speed and distance directly related?

They are related over the time. Speed x time = distance.They are related over the time. Speed x time = distance.They are related over the time. Speed x time = distance.They are related over the time. Speed x time = distance.


What Speed with distance is called?

speed divided by distance is time; or distance equals speed x time. Not sure of your question, but If speed is associated with direction, then it is called velocity, which is a vector, whereas speed is a scalarquantity

What is force equals distance divided by time?

Force equals distance divded by time is F= M x D and it's the equation for work done or it's V= D / T and it's the formula for velocity - distance over time.


Can the distance traveled still be divided by the time taken to travel the distance if the speed accelerates to travel the distance?

The formula, distance = speed x time, or speed = distance / time, assumes constant speed. If the speed changes, then the formula speed = distance / time will give you the average speed over the time period. To get the instantaneous speed in this case, you must divide distance / time for a very short time interval.

If a car can travel at aproximently 55 miles per hour how many hours will the trip take?

That would also depend on the distance. Use the formula distance = speed x time. Solving for time: time = distance / speed.That would also depend on the distance. Use the formula distance = speed x time. Solving for time: time = distance / speed.That would also depend on the distance. Use the formula distance = speed x time. Solving for time: time = distance / speed.That would also depend on the distance. Use the formula distance = speed x time. Solving for time: time = distance / speed.


What is the unit for work when using the formula distance over time?

The formulas are W = Fd (work = force x distance) P = W/t (power = work divided by time) and W = Pt Which means that P = Fd/t (power = force x distance divided by time) The SI unit of power, the watt, equals 1 newton-meter/sec (1 joule/sec).
