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 and instantaneous speed are the same when the speed is constant during the time period you're interested in.

The magnitude of both can be the same.

Average speed is an average value of speed over a given time. If your speed is constant (not changing), then your average speed will equal your speed at any given moment in time.

different on constant and instantaneous speed

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

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

In that case, the average speed is the same as the instantaneous speed.

d/t=s d = distance t = time s = speed the speed is actually going to be the average speed because they are practically the same thing (and for this equation speed is the exact same thing as average speed)

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.

Distance does not affect the average speed. A car can travel 1 kilometre at an average speed of 60 km per hour, or it can travel 100 km at the same average speed.

They do have the same average speed ... it's called the air temprature. I believe you need to define average for yourself.

The same way you calculate the average speed of anything else. Divide distance by time.

The same way you calculate the average speed of any object. You divide distance by time.

Constant speed is unchanging. average speed is an average of speeds over a time (or distance) span and those speeds can have changed a lot. The average speed of something travelling at constant speed has however exactly the same value as the constant speed of that object.

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

9.70, at the same average speed

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.

It almost never is ... define average : ALL the different speeds divided by the number of times you measured it.

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

It can be any of them. If your final speed is the fastest you have gone then it is smaller, if it is the slowest you have gone then it is bigger and if it is the average of what you have been doing then it is the same.

depends, if that was the constant speed at all times uphill and downhill, and the times are both the same. then the average speed would be 15mph

The average spped increase

Yes, if the car moves in only one direction.

Most things don't move with the same speed at all times
