SPEED/DISTANCE/TIME

SPEED DISTANCE TIME DETERMINATION

Speed:
  • measured in knots per hour to nearest tenth.
Distance:
  • measured in miles to nearest tenth.
  • measure with dividers on nearest latitudes
Time:
  • measured in minutes
  • divide minutes by 60 to get 00.0 hours [000min/60 = 00.0 hrs]
  • multiply tenths of hours by 60 to get minutes [.0h x 60 = 00 min]
Formulas:
  • Cover the unknown in the figure below and do the calculations:
  • S = (60min)x(D)/T
  • T = (60min)x(D)/S
  • D = (S)x(60min)/T
