###### Wiki User

No, it can't. Average VELOCITY can be zero, though.

No, the average speed cannot be zero if the object is moving.

Yes; for example, an object moving in a circle.

The magnitude of average velocity of an object equal to its average speed if that object is moving with CONSTANT velocity.

Yes. If an object is moving at a constant speed the average speed and the constant speed are the same.

The average speed of an moving object is determined by using the formula velocity=distance/time or v=d/t.

Friction can be increased by reducing the speed of the moving object. Friction can also be increased by increasing the weight of the moving object.

An object moving in a circular path at constant speed will have a non-zero average speed and zero average velocity since velocity is a vector parameter,

To drive onto a moving object (as, for example, up a ramp onto a moving trailer), you must be going faster than the object to move forward up the ramp, but when you come to a stop relative to the object, you will be moving with the object, so must be moving at the same speed. You must, in fact, decelerate to a stop on the object, or your faster approach speed would carry you through and beyond it.

as the moving object covers some distance in some interval of time and average speed is obtained by dividing the total distance travelled by total time taken

An object that is moving at 1 m/s is also moving at 3.6 km/h. Average speed is the rate of total distance and the time interval.

Any object moving in a circle (as in a centrifuge, or a planet in an orbit) is accelerating. More generally, any object that moves in a curve is accelerating (such as a car moving in a curve on the road).

In physics, work is equal to force times distance W=F*D Work is basically moving an object parallel to its acceleration. For example, holding an object above the ground is not work, since there object has not moved. An example of work is moving a book, an object at free fall, etc.

When an object is moving along a straight line at a variable speed, we can express the magnitude of the rate of motion in terms of average velocity.It is the same way as we calculate average speed.

A moving object is subject to friction. Whether sliding on a surface, or rolling on a surface, there is still friction from the surface. An object flying or throw in the air is subject to friction from the air.

An object at rest. Actually that's the only possible example for a single object. For two objects, you can have objects moving in opposite directions; for example, one may have a momentum of +100 units, and the other, a momentum of -100 units.

True Temperature is the measure of the average velocity of the particles in an object. The faster the particles are moving, the higher the temperature is in the object.

Distance traveled divided by the time it took.

If an object is moving, no force is required to keep it moving. Forces are required to CHANGE its motion, for example, to speed it up, or to slow it down.
