Name:    Physics -- Speed Word Problems (S=D/T) (Note:  The problems may look familiar, but the numbers are different!)

(Note:  Print this test out on your printer.  Use the included solution boxes to work out your answer.
When you have the answers, come back to the web page and input your answers using the guidelines
listed below.  This test accepts answers in the format of
S = 3 m/sec     (or)     S=3m/sec
--- in other words, your answers must either have a space after the missing variable, a space after the
equals mark, and a space after the number OR no spaces!)
