# Plate Tectonic Velocity Equations

**Formula:**`v = r / t`

## Introduction to Plate Tectonic Velocity Equations

The plate tectonic velocity equation calculates the velocity of the tectonic plate movement. In this formula, ** v** represents the velocity,

**is the distance traveled by the tectonic plate, and**

*r***is the time taken for the movement. The result is expressed in units of distance per unit time such as centimeters per year, meters per century, etc.**

*t*## Parameter usage:

`r`

= distance traveled by the tectonic plate`t`

= time taken for the movement

## Output:

`v`

= plate tectonic velocity

## Data validation

The distance and time should be greater than zero.

## Summary

This calculator takes into account the distance and time of tectonic plate movement and outputs its velocity. It is used in geology to understand the dynamics of tectonic plate movements.
