# Speed Quizzes, Questions & Answers

In Old English, “sped” meant “success” or “thriving”, having grown out of the same ancient root “spe-” as the Latin “sperare” (to hope) and its relatives “prosperity” and “despair”.

The word “speed” was only applied to motion in the early 14th century. Speed is a relative measurement and, according to Einstein’s theory of Special Relativity, the constant against which the speed of all objects in the universe is measured is the speed of light (186,282 miles per second).

It’s high time for this concept of physics to prove its worth, so take these quizzes and find the answers to questions like “What is instantaneous speed?”, “What is the linear speed of something moving along a circular path?”, and “Who was the first to measure speed by considering the distance covered and the time it takes”. Now, be speedy about it!
