Difference between speed and velocity and average speed and velocity

Asked by Shreeya | 8th May, 2012, 06:57: PM

Expert Answer:

The term speed means only the magnitude of the speed of the particle at any defined point.
When the direction of motion is included in this speed, it becomes a vector quantity called velocity at any given point. Now , when this speed is defined for a interval of time then it becomes average speed. And when direction is included in this average speed , it again refers to the average velocity.
