# What is an example for average speed?

75 miles per hour. the average speed is how many miles (or kilometers, inches, centimeters etc.) u can travel in one hour, seconds, etc.

For cars, it is usually miles per hour or km per hour.

### Compare and contrast velocity and instantaneous speed?

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…

### Is average velocity vector or scalar quantity?

no its a vector quantity,not a scalar quantity,bcz still it z a velocity bt NT a speed On a typical journey the average velocity is the straight-line distance between the start and finish, divided by the time taken, and it also has a direction. The average speed is the actual distance run, divided by the speed. The average speed might not be equal to the magnitude of the average velocity. For example on a round…

### What is average speed and how is it different from speed?

the average speed is the speed you calculated when you have different speeds at different points or distances. It is different from speed because average speed has many speeds averaged into one speed ..while speed is specifically only one. Speed is instantaneous speed, whereas average speed is the average of the instantaneous speeds over an interval (time).

### How can you find the average speed of a pedestrian?

For the speed of a single pedestrian, measure the time it takes him/her to walk a set distance (for example 10 meters) and divide the distance by the time. For the average speed of a pedestrian find a large number of people and measure the speed of each person and find the average by summing all the speeds and dividing by the number of people who took the test.

### Difference between instananeous speed and average speed?

instantaneous speed is the exact speed at a moment in time. average speed is the overall average over a unit of time. for example, say you were driving to the store which was 10 miles away and it takes you 30 minutes to get there. your average speed would be 20 miles an hour because you went 10 miles in 30 minutes. however it is highly unlikely you went exactly 20 mph the whole time…

### How long does it take to drive 0.34 miles?

Average Speed = (distance traveled) / (total time), Total time = (distance traveled) / (average speed). So, to calculate time taken, you need to know the speed and the distance. Note that average speed is a quantity that is normally calculated based on the distance traveled and the time taken. If you slow down and speed up, these factors affect your average speed over a given distance. But if you were already traveling at a…

### How do you find the average speed?

To get the average speed in a given distance you would take distance divide by time which would equal average speed. An example of this would be: The 1970 NASCAR race at the Poconos speed way. A 1970 Plymouth Superbird was raced 200 lap's. Between each stop for fuel they recorded the average speed for that section of the race. At one point in the race Richard Petty, the driver of the Superbird, ran 10…

### What is average speed?

It is distance traveled over time. Speed may vary on a trip, so those numbers are averaged to come up with average speed. To find an average, take all numbers, add them, then divide by the number of inputs. Example- 2, 3, 7, 4-add together-16 Divide by inputs or no of numbers-4 Answer-4 which is the AVERAGE

### Can the average velocity of a particle be zero but not its average speed?

Yes, since velocity is speed and direction its average can be zero. For example say a plane flies from point A to point B at 300 mph and turns around to go from B to A at 300 mph; its average velocity is 0 since it is in the same spot as it started ( the velocity vectors cancel) but its average speed is 300 mph.
