Enter the distance and speed into the calculator to determine the time. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

M/S To Seconds Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the time in seconds it takes for an object to travel a certain distance at a certain speed in meters per second.

T = D / S


  • T is the time in seconds (s)
  • D is the distance the object is traveling (meters)
  • S is the speed of the object (meters per second)

To calculate the time, divide the distance the object is traveling by the speed of the object. The result will be the time it takes for the object to travel the specified distance at the given speed, in seconds.

What is a M/S To Seconds?

M/S to Seconds is a conversion from meters per second to seconds. It is typically used in physics or other scientific fields to convert a speed or velocity measurement from one unit to another. This conversion is important when you want to determine how long it will take for an object moving at a certain speed to travel a certain distance. The conversion factor depends on the specific distance the object is traveling.

How to Calculate M/S To Seconds?

The following steps outline how to calculate the M/S to Seconds.

  1. First, determine the distance the object is traveling (D) in meters.
  2. Next, determine the speed of the object (S) in meters per second.
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = T = D / S.
  4. Finally, calculate the time in seconds (T).
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Distance (D) = 500 meters

Speed (S) = 50 meters per second
