Distance is the measurement of the physical space between two points or objects. It is a scalar quantity and is typically measured in units such as meters, feet, or miles. Distance can be calculated by using various methods such as measuring with a ruler, using GPS technology, or calculating based on speed and time. Distance is a fundamental concept in many areas of science and engineering, including physics, astronomy, and transportation. It is important for understanding the physical world and for practical applications such as navigation and travel planning.

The formula for determining the distance can be derived from the velocity formula:

\(v\) \(=\) \(\dfrac{d}{t}\)

\(d\): the distance

\(v\): the velocity/speed

\(t\): the time

The SI unit of distance is: \(meter \text{ }(m)\)
