  • Scope of Supply


Speed is one of the basic concepts of the theory of motion. It indicates how fast an object is moving in space and is measured in the unit meter per second. The concept of instantaneous velocity is based on the average speed as the quotient of the spatial change of position in a certain arbitrarily small period of time.
