The distance that a wave travels in a certain amount of time is a wavelength. Wrong,it's speed.(:

The scientific definition for speed is : The distance an object travels in a certain amount of time. I hope that helps you!:)

Its speed is the distance it travels per unit time.

It goes faster

It will take less time.

The distance will increase as the speed (absolute value of velocity) increases.

Because distance/time = the speed at which something travels.

It is a bit hard to answer your question, as it lacked of a few things: Total Distance or total time, the distance which the speed(answer) is in or the amount of time the person travels with the speed(answer).

-- The distance that light travels in some amount of time is expressed in units of distance. -- The time that it takes light to cover some amount of distance is expressed in units of time. -- The speed of light is expressed in units of speed . . . distance/time

The speed varies according to the refractive index of the objects.

Its speed is the distance it travels per unit time.

Speed = Distance / Time

Speed is calculated as the distance an object travels, divided by the amount of time it took to go that amount of distance. For example - a car takes 2 hours to travel 80 miles. 80/2 is 40 - so it's speed is 40 mph.

determine the units of a caterpillar's speed if you measure the distance the caterpillar travels in centimeters and the time it takes to travels this distance in minute
