Enter the average velocity (ft/s) and the total time (s) into the Average Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Average Distance. 

Average Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Average Distance. 

Dave = Vave * T
  • Where Dave is the Average Distance (ft)
  • Vave is the average velocity (ft/s) 
  • T is the total time (s) 

To calculate an average distance, simply multiply the average velocity by the time.

How to Calculate Average Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Average Distance.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the average velocity (ft/s).
    • The average velocity (ft/s) is given as: 60.
  2. Next, determine the total time (s).
    • The total time (s) is provided as: 8.
  3. Finally, calculate the Average Distance using the equation above: 

Dave = Vave * T

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Dave = 60 * 8 = 480 (ft)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

average velocity (ft/s) = 75

total time (s) = 100

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

Dave = Vave * T = ?
