IF you ever forget the formula, simply look at the units

8.3m/s has meters on top, that's good. Seconds are on the bottom, so you need to multiply by seconds on the top to cancel out seconds.

8.3 m/s * 0.6 s = 4.98 m

Source(s): Many times you can simply use the units to work the problem!!! - lenpol7Lv 71 month ago
speed(s) = distance(m) / time(s)

s = m/s

algebraically rearrange

m = ss'

m = 8.3 m/s x 0.6s

m = 4.98 m (metres)

NB the units 's(seconds)' cancel down .
