For the purposes of this explanation, velocity will be given in m/s. If it's starting position is the same as its stopping position, the radio controlled car will have an average velocity of zero meters per second. This is because average velocity is displacement/time interval. Displacement is change in position and is a vector quantity, which has magnitude and direction. Average velocity is the displacement/time interval, and is also a vector quantity, including the magnitude of the speed and its direction. If you start and stop walking at the same position, your displacement is 0m, even if you walked a distance of 100 miles, and your average velocity would be 0m/s.

What is true controlled experiments produce valid data valid experiments produce controlled data controlled data produces valid experiments?

With controlled experiments it is taken into consideration what possible variables there could be and it is taken into account when conducting the experiment. This would mean that controlled experiments would produce more valid data.


Would instantaneous velocity yield the same value as average velocity?

Only if the velocity is constant.


What is the average velocity of the particle from rest to 15 seconds?

To find average velocity, you need to know the displacement. If you knew displacement, average velocity would be found by: V = Displacement / time


When is an object's average velocity equal to its instantaneous velocity?

If the velocity is constant (i.e., there is no acceleration). Terminal velocity is an example, although any constant velocity would fit this description.


When an object moves with constant velocity does its average velocity during a time interval differ from its instantaneous velocity at any instant?

No. If it its moving at constant velocity, its instantaneous velocity would be the same as its constant velocity.


Calculate average kinetic energy?

Would that be mass times velocity


How would a physicist define average velocity?

Average velocity is simply the difference in position, divided by the time. Since you use the word "velocity" rather than "speed", a direction must be indicated. Exapmle: If you drive 100 km. due North, during 2 hours, your average velocity is 50km. per hour due North.


How long will it take for Apollo 11 to travel to the sun if it moves at the same average velocity from earth to the sun?

It would depend on what that velocity was.


How can you get average velocity?

You can calculate average speed by dividing the total distance travelled by the total time of travel. To go from speed to velocity, you would also need to determine the vector (direction of travel).


How would you differentiate between speed and 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).


What is the average velocity of light?

There is no average velocity of light. Within a given medium, the velocity of light is fixed and absolute. In a vacuum, it is approximately 3.0 x 108 m/s, or 186,000 miles per second. It would be somewhat slower through denser media like water and glass.


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, at for example t=1.425, the speed is 24m/h . something along those lines


Can an object having zero average velocity over a given time still be accelerating during that interval?

Yes, an object having zero average velocity over a given time may still be accelerating during that interval, relative to another object which is accelerating away from it (i.e., an observer on that other object would see the "zero average velocity" object moving away from him/her).

Change in velocity divided by the thime it takes for the change to occur?

That would be the magnitude of the average acceleration during that period of time.


What is the time that elaspes if you you travel 954 with an average velocity of 2.8?

954 / 2.8 = 340.71428571428571428571428571429About 340 time units(I would have said 341 if there had been three significant figures in the velocity value)


How much electricity does an average hydroelectric dam generate?

Although several large-scale dams can produce over 1000 MW, an average dam will produce anywhere from 80 MW to 500 MW. An average value for those would probably be about 200 MW.


How do you calculate moving charges?

I guess that would depend on what you want to calculate (the charge? the velocity? the average energy of the charges?), and what information is given.


What information is needed to determine the average velocity of a marble?

All you need to know is the distance the marble travelled and how long it took to travel that distance. For example, if a marble travels 30 cm in 5 seconds then its average velocity would be 30 / 5 cm / sec = 6 cm / sec.


Average velocity always equals one-half the sum of the initial and final velocities?

Is this a question? or a statement that you are unsure of? Well anyways, this would be correct if acceleration was a constant but if acceleration is not a constant, the (not-constant) acceleration would change the rate of velocity and thus that statement/question would be false.
