1.

A car travels at 40 mph for 60 minutes. How far does it go?

40 kilometres

40 miles

60 miles

240 miles

60 minutes = 1 hour, so distance = 40 mph x 1 h = 40 miles

2.

A cyclist has a speed of 10 km/h. She cycles for 120 minutes - how far does she go?

10 kilometres

12 kilometres

20 kilometres

1,200 kilometres

120 minutes = 2 hours, so distance = 10 km/h x 2 h = 20 km

3.

If time is measured in seconds, speed in m/s, distance .......

is in centimetres

is in metres

is in kilometres

is in miles

This is the basic SI unit of distance

4.

If time is measured in hours, speed in km/h, distance .......

is in centimetres

is in metres

is in kilometres

is in miles

You don't always need to express distance in metres per second, in fact it can sometimes be more helpful to know speeds in more familiar everyday units like km/h

5.

A car travels at 50 mph for 2 hours. How far does it go?

10 miles

50 miles

100 miles

100 kilometres

Distance = 50 mph x 2 h = 100 miles

6.

If time is measured in hours, speed in mph, distance .......

is in centimetres

is in metres

is in kilometres

is in miles

Professional scientists would never use mph as a measure for speed in their experiments

7.

A cyclist has a speed of 10 km/h. She cycles for 2 hours - how far does she go?

5 kilometres

12 kilometres

20 kilometres

25 kilometres

Distance = 10 km/h x 2 h = 20 kilometres

8.

If a peregrine falcon flies at 90 km/h, how far could it fly in 20 minutes?

4.5 kilometres

18 kilometres

30 kilometres

1,800 kilometres

20 minutes = 20/60 = 1/3 hour, so distance = 1/3 h x 90 km/h = 30 km

9.

A dog runs at 15 m/s for 30 seconds. How far does it travel?

45m

450m

2km

4.5km

15 m/s x 30 s = 450 m

10.

An athlete runs at 8 m/s for 1 minute. How far do they go?

48m

80m

480m

4.8km

1 minute = 60 seconds, so distance = 8 m/s x 60 s = 480 m
