## Explanation

### Basic Formula

The distance can be calculated using the formula:

$d = v \times t$Here:

- $d$:
**distance** - $v$:
**speed**or velocity - $t$:
**time**

### Example Calculation

Suppose an object is moving with a constant speed of 60 meters per second for a time span of 5 seconds. Plug the values into the formula:

$d = 60 \, \text{m/s} \times 5 \, \text{s}$ $d = 300 \, \text{m}$The object travels a distance of **300 meters**.

### Variable Speed

In cases where the speed is not constant, you have to integrate the velocity over the given time period. The formula becomes:

$d = \int_{t_1}^{t_2} v(t) \, dt$Here, $v(t)$ is the velocity as a function of time, and you're integrating from the starting time $t_1$ to the ending time $t_2$.

### Important Considerations

- Ensure the units for speed and time are consistent.
- For objects with varying speed, use the integration approach.
- If acceleration is involved, the speed $v$ itself might depend on time or distance.

By understanding and applying these formulas, you can accurately calculate the distance an object travels in a specific time.
