Automobile Median Speed (Ms)

The estimated Automobile Median Speed is a product of Duration (Du) and Automobile Distance (Di). This number is used to compare with average cycling speeds.

  1. Ms = (60 / Du) * Di
  2. Ms = (60 / 33.4) * 8
  3. Ms = (60 / 33.4) * 8
  4. Ms = 1.80 * 8
  5. Ms = 14.4 km/h
