The Difference Between

Top Answer

Average acceleration is the average of the accelerations acquired in the whole journey by a body while instantaneous acceleration is the acceleration of the body at any particular instant of time.

0Suppose you accelerate in your car from stopped to 50 km.hr-1. When you were stopped your instantaneous speed was zero. At the end of the period of acceleration your instantaneous speed was 50 km.hr-1. If your rate of acceleration was constant then your average speed was 25 km.hr-1.

Instantaneous speed: The speed at which I'm moving right now, this instant.Average speed: (The distance I covered during some period of time) divided by (the length of time).I may have had different instantaneous speeds at different points during that time.Acceleration: The rate at which speed changes. Acceleration can also be instantaneous or average overa period of time.

Instantaneous velocity is the rate at which an object is moving in a uniform direction, distance per unit time, at any given instant in time. instantaneous acceleration is the rate at which an object's velocity is changing at any given instant in time

Instantaneous speed is speed measured at a specific time. Speed is an average.

Instantaneous speed is the speed at a particular moment in time.The average speed of an object tells you the (average) rate at which it covers distance

the instantaneous velocity or speed is the speed a body travels at a particular and average velocity is the total distance an object

Tangential acceleration is acceleration in the direction of travel, i.e. tangent to the instantaneous velocity. Centripetal acceleration is perpendicular or normal to that, specifically, in the direction of the acceleration, i.e. towards the center of the circle of travel. Angular acceleration is anything in between, or outside of those two definition, i.e. not tangent and not normal.

Average velocity is simply displacement over time. Instantaneous velocity is the velocity at any given instant, or the displacement over an infinitely small amount of time.

There is no Difference There is no Difference

The instantaneous rate is the rate at a particular moment in the reaction (point of interest) and the average reaction rate is the appearance of a product over a particular time interval.

Instantaneous speed:- It is the rate of change of position with respect to time,at that instant. Average speed:-Average speed is defined as the total path length travelled divided by the total time interval.

average velocity is the displacement over time while instantaneous velocity refers to the velocity of an object at one point or at as pecific point of time. *displacement is the difference between the initial position and the final position of an object. (distance 2 - distance 1)

Avg velocity is the speed you are going. Constant acceleration is the rate you increase your speed. = =

Average or instantaneous? The average is the height divided by the horizontal distance, whereas the instantaneous alternates between zero and infinity.

Speed is how fast you are moving. Acceleration is the rate at which speed is changing. In strict physical terms, acceleration is the difference between the ending and starting speed divided by the time over which the change occurred. In that sense the word can mean that speed is increasing (positive acceleration), decreasing (negative acceleration), or not changing (zero acceleration). However in common usage, negative acceleration is usually called deceleration. Acceleration can be calculated as an average (Δv/Δt) or an instantaneous (dv/dt) measurement.

Speed, instantaneous or not, is a term used for how fast an object travels. Velocity, instantaneous or not, is a term used for how fast an object travels in a particular direction.

Depends. Slope of tangent = instantaneous rate of change. Slope of secant = average rate of change.

Gravitational acceleration is simply acceleration due to gravity.

The average velocity over an time interval is the average of the instantaneous velocities for all instants over that period. Conversely, as the time interval is reduced, the average velocity comes closer and closer to the instantaneous velocity.

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity.

Their almost the same, because acceleration is because of gravity.

The difference is in the direction of the acceleration. Tangential acceleration is in the direction of movement. Radial acceleration is at right angles to it (towards, or away from, the center of a circle for example).

That's correct, the instantaneous magnitudes are equal. Non-instantaneous values may not be equal. For example, to find average speed, between two points, you divide the actual path distance by the time, but for average velocity you divide the straight line distance, between the points, by the time. The straight line distance could be quite a bit shorter then the actual path distance (for curved motion) so you could get a big difference between those averages. When calculating "instantaneous" values, however, the difference between "actual path distance" and "straight line distance" becomes insignificant, because you are using distances for infintesimally small time intervals.

Instant means Being ready.Instantaneous means spontaneously.

Yes. A ngular acceleration is to do with something turning. Radial acceleration is linear acceleration perpendicular to the angular acceleration.
