velocity is a vector and speed is scalar. Velocity has magnitude and directions, with magnitude being speed. The magnitude of average velocity and average speed is the same.

Average velocity equals the average speed if (and only if) the motion is in the same direction. If not, the average speed, being the average of the absolute value of the velocity, will be larger.

For the instantaneous value of average velocity, average speed and average velocity are equal.

Velocity is speed and its direction. Average velocity is average speed and its direction.

I think it is cuz speed is velocity it's just a vector (more difficult name)

BecuZ average is the same limit and the other is nesting velocity

Speed and velocity always have the same magnitude, becausespeed is the magnitude of velocity.The difference is that velocity has a direction but speed doesn't

As long as there is no change in direction then they are effectively the same.

No, they are not the same! Velocity involves the speed and the direction of the moving object...

same speed , coz velocity is constant velocity consists of speed and direction...

No. Speed has no direction. Velocity is speed anddirection.

velocity is just a general term for speed (it could be average velocity or instantaneous velocity). Instantaneous velocity/speed (same thing) is the speed at that second. If you are familiar with calculus, it is the derivative of the position graph. Whereas average velocity is how fast the object is going in, for example, 1 hour, it is the speed that is maintained the whole hour (or the average) Instantaneous would be that at the second, at for example t=1.425, the speed is 24m/h . something along those lines

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

The term "velocity", as used in physics, DOES have an associated direction. Most derived terms, such as "average velocity", also do.

No, velocity is a vector quantity (i.e. magnitude &amp; direction) while speed is a scalar quantity (i.e. magnitude only).

One example of Velocity is that if you are running in the same direction, your speed and velocity is the same. But if you are running AROUND the track, your speed is the same but your velocity is changing.

the instantaneous velocity or speed is the speed a body travels at a particular and average velocity is the total distance an object

That is the case when you are talking about instantaneous speed and velocity - or when the velocity is constant. In the case of an average speed and velocity, this relation does not hold.

Instantaneous speed is the magnitude of the velocity. Velocity also states the [direction] of the speed.

Velocity is speed and the direction of the speed. (30 miles per hour going north) and (30 miles per hour going south) are both the same speed, but they're opposite velocities.

No. Inertia is the tendency of an object to maintain its velocity.

Because velocity is a measurement of change of speed rather than an average constant speed. To get the average speed (as you rightly said) - you divide the total distance travelled by the time taken. The average velocity is the change in speed over time (either an increase or decrease).
