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 hourCheers
Asked in Physics
Difference between average velocity and average speed?
Velocity is speed and the direction of the speed. (30 miles per hour going north) and (30 miles per hour going south) are both the same speed, but they're opposite velocities. ...
How are average speed and instantaneous speed alike?
Average speed and instantaneous speed are both measurements of the speed of an object. The instantaneous speed measures how fast the object is going at a particular moment, while average speed shows how fast the object was moving in total over time. ...

What does the driver check while looking a the speedometer?
The driver checks the average speed of the car, which is the distance per hour is going. Average speed is the constant speed something is traveling at. ...

How do the ocean influence wind speed and direction?
The ocean does not influence wind speed and direction. The currents in the ocean are caused by wind speed and direction. The tides in the ocean are influenced by the phases of the moon. ...
Asked in Math and Arithmetic
How do you calculate the speed of something going down a hill?
Average speed = Distance travelled/Time taken. And that applies whether the object is going downhill, uphill or is on a roller coaster. ...
How long would it take a horse to travel 20 miles?
This would depend on how fast the horse is going. Without the speed there is no answer. The average speed of the average horse is about 12 mph. ...
How long does it take to drive a distance of 96 miles?
That would depend on the speed you were going at. Since one never drives at a constant speed, it would have to be an average speed. ...

What speed is the average remote controlled car going up a 45 degree angle?
Cars - whether remote controlled or not - have a vast range of speeds. There is no systematic study to calculate the average speed. ...
Asked in Physics, Length and Distance
Are speed and average speed different?
Yes, because average speed is all of the different speeds added together and then divided by how many speeds there are (ex: 70 mph + 60 mph = 130 mph. 130 mph divided by 2 = 65 mph (which is the average speed)) and speed is just how fast an object is moving (ex: 80 mph is the speed of something going 80 mph). ...
How can you determine distance across Atlantic ocean?
get the average speed that a plane takes to get across it and multiply it by the time it takes to get to the other side, use the same units for speed and time ...
Asked in Physics
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). ...
Asked in Science
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....
