Speed, distance, and time are fundamental concepts in physics that describe motion. Speed is the rate at which an object covers a certain distance over a period of time. Distance is the total length of the path traveled by an object. Time is the duration of the motion.

The relationship between speed, distance, and time is expressed by the following equation:

\[ \text{Speed} = \frac{\text{Distance}}{\text{Time}} \]

Where:

- Speed is typically measured in units such as meters per second (m/s) or kilometers per hour (km/h)
- Distance is measured in units of length, such as meters (m) or kilometers (km)
- Time is measured in units such as seconds (s) or hours (h)

Let's calculate the speed of a car that travels 240 kilometers in 3 hours:

- Identify the known values:
- Distance = 240 km
- Time = 3 h

- Apply the speed formula: \[ \text{Speed} = \frac{\text{Distance}}{\text{Time}} \]
- Substitute the known values: \[ \text{Speed} = \frac{240 \text{ km}}{3 \text{ h}} \]
- Perform the calculation: \[ \text{Speed} = 80 \text{ km/h} \]

Let's visualize the speed, distance, and time relationship with our example:

This visual representation shows:

- The total distance covered by the car (240 km)
- The time taken for the journey (3 hours)
- The speed of the car (80 km/h) represented by the area
