A system of units used by scientists to measure the properties of matter.
The distance an object travels per unit of time.

The overall rate of speed at which an object moves; calculated by dividing the total distance an object travels by the total time.
Average speed formula
As: total distance/ total time
The speed of an object at one instant of time.
Speed in a given direction.
