## Time formula

Formula of time basically means the time which is or will be taken by any object or a thing a cover or completes a particular distance at a given speed s is termed as the SI unit of time.

As we know that time is the interval between an object reaching a particular place at a given speed. So there is a formula through which we can capsulate the time which is taken by any object. This goes from past to present and then it moves from present to future.

**The formula for taking out time:**

**Time = distance/ speed**

So basically, we can only find out time when the speed and the distance to be covered by any object are provided.

## Solved Examples

**1. How much time will an object take it the distance which it has to cover is 3600m and the speed at which it is around 2 meter per second. **

**Answer:**

Here, the distance which needs to be covered is given which is 3600 m and the speed at which the object is moving is 2 meter per second.

On applying the formula of time:

Distance = 3600m

Speed = 2 meter/sec.

Time = distance/ speed

Therefore,

Time = 3600/2

This is 1800 seconds taken by the object.

Here we can say that the object takes 1800 seconds in covering 3600 m at the speed of 2m/ sec.

**2. Use the time formula and find out the time taken by a person when he is running at the speed of 20 km/ hr and the distance he needs to cover is 400 km. **

**Answer:**

The distance he needs to cover is 400 km and the speed at which he is running is 20 km/hr.

So the time taken will be the distance to be covered divided by the speed at which he is.

Therefore, after applying the formula:

Time = distance/ speed.

We get that Time = 400 /20.

So the time that he will take while covering 400 kilo meters at the speed of 20 km/hr is 20 Hours.
