What is the Formula Connecting Distance, Speed, and Time?
The formula for uniform motion, meaning something is moving at a constant speed, is d=rt. This involves distance, rate, and time. If the word problem gives two of any of these values, the third unknown value can be found.

The Speed of Galaxy Q2125-431
In this speed of a galaxy worksheet, students use a given equation for the speed of an object and they use the spectral lines for Hydrogen Alpha and Beta from the Seyfert galaxy to answer 6 questions. They determine the observed wavelengths, the rest wavelengths, the velocities of the wavelengths and if the galaxy is moving towards or away from the Milky Way Galaxy.
