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


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
