Can total time be used to solve for average speed?
I'd imagine distance/total time=average speed
If you consider the total distance and total time for a trip are you calculating an instantaneous speed or constant speed average speed or non-uniform speed?
The average amount of motion can be determined by the average speed or velocity of an object. The average speed can be calculated by the total distance divided by the total time. Speed is a scalar quantity. The average velocity can be calculated by the total displacement divided by the total time. Velocity is a vector.
The total distance by the total time of a moving object is the average speed of the object. If the moving object is a train that makes a few stops along its route, it will have some kind of average speed associated with its journey. An investigator will find the average speed by dividing the total distance it traveled by the total time that has elapses since it left point A to get to point…
