There are several equations that involve speed; the basic equation, that defines speed, is: speed = distance / time Which is often written as: distance = speed x time This assumes constant speed. For variable speed, the limit should be taken, resulting in: dv = ds/dt where v is the velocity, s is the position, and t is the time.

If the displacement of the object (its position) can be described as a functional or algebric equation, you can find the instant speed of this object by calculating the derivative of its displacement equation, knowing that speed is the first derivative of position and acceleration, its second.

C is often the speed of light. Depends on the equation though. It can also stand for carbon in chemical equations.
