Cruising speed (best balance of speed and efficiency ) is normally about 10 knots, top speed around 29 knots. Actual speeds varies from ship to ship depending of hull design and propulsion systems.

**10 knots = 18.52 kilometers per hour**

### How are instantabeous speed and average speed diffent?

Instantaneous speed is the speed at a single point in time.
Think of it like you are taking a picture of a person riding a
bike. In that picture, at that moment in time, that bike is
traveling along at some speed- the instantaneous speed. Now average
speed is more like you are watching a bike rider over a period of
time. Say, you watch him for an hour, and he goes about 15 miles.
Therefore, his average speed is 15mph....
