No. Average speed is.

False. Average speed is.

average velocity x time

what is magnitude of average velocity

No. Average velocity is still a velocity.Distance is a product of (a velocity or speed) times (a length of time).

false. Average speed is.

what is magnitude of average velocity

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.

Velocity (speed) = distance/time

Shortest distance is called displacement . displacement =average velocity / average time . It is a vector quantity both has magnitude and direction.But,distance is a scalar quantity having only magnitude.

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

Speed is the magnitude of distance travelled per unit time, whereas velocity depends on the magnitude of distance travelled as well as the direction of motion. Speed is a scalar quantity, velocity is a vector. Speed cannot be negative, velocity can be negative. Average speed of an object after travelling a certain distance is always non-zero, but for velocity the average velocity can be zero (this follows from the previous idea).

It is not. Average acceleration is (change of velocity)/(time for the change)

velocity is a vector quantity. Its magnitude is given by (velocity)= (distance)/(time)

No, acceleration is rate of change of velocity!

1. magnitude of distance covered is equal to the magnitude of displacement. 2. the motion of the object is in a straight line i.e. in a particular direction.

Speed is equal to the magnitude of velocity almost always. Speed is total distance / total time no matter which way the distance goes. Velocity is the distance from a starting point divided by total time.

speed (magnitude of velocity)

Speed. (the magnitude of velocity)

The definition of speed is the size/magnitude/measure of an object's velocity. Average speed = distance divided by time

Average velocity is the distance traveled divided by the time it takes to travel that distance. Average velocity is also called "velocity".

displacement/time

The magnitude of both can be the same.

The magnitude is the speed, such as m/s or km/h.
