Formula for Velocity = DISTANCE traveled/TIME to travel distance + direction

For this one, we can use mph(miles per hour) as unit. 

v = 1,000 miles / 336 hours   (2 weeks = 24 hours  x 14 days = 336 hrs)
   = 2.98 mph North

or we can use kph (kilometers per hour)

v = 1609.34 km / 336 hours    (1 mile = 1.60934 km)
  = 4.79 kph North
