Enter the rate and time into the calculator to determine the total distance traveled.
The following formula uses rate and time to calculate distance.
D = R * T
- Where D is the distance
- R is the rate
- T is the time
DRT is defined as distance equals rate multiplied by time.
How to calculate distance from rate and time.
- First, measure the rate.
The rate is also known as speed or velocity. For this example, we will say the rate is 10m/s.
- Next, measure the total time.
For this example, we will say that the total time that has passed is 20 seconds.
- Finally, calculate the distance.
Using the formula above, we find the total distance traveled to be: 10 m/s * 20 s = 200m.
DRT is defined as distance equals rate times time.
