Question

Explain the meaning of the term speed.

Solution

The distance covered or travelled by a body in one second is called the speed of the body, i.e.

Speed = `"Distance travelled "/"Time taken"`

Speed is usually denoted by the symbol v. 

If a body travels  a  distance  d  in time t , then its speed is given as 

Speed  (v)  = `d/t` 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
