the physics formula for finding distance is v/t or speed divided by time. An easy way to remember this is to use something called the magic triangle, it will help you figure out the formulas for time, speed and distance and essentially velocity. The triangle is

D=Distance

V=Speed T=Time

D= Distance and T= Time

V= Speed

D= V x T

V= D/T

T= D/V

Velocity's formula is Df(finale)-Di(initial)/ T or delta D/ Delta T

Delta= Change

### What is the different of pure physics and apllied physics?

Pure physics is the mathematical theory behind physics. ex) The
derivations, understanding, and proofs of Fourier Series that are
required in electrical engineering. Applied physics is the use of
physics to produce some event in a physical system. ex) Using
Fourier Series to achieve some goal in electrical engineering.
