The instantaneous velocity is given as
Here, the limit is taken for time interval. It has to tend to zero.
This limit signifies that the time interval for which the average velocity is measured is very small, that is, tending to zero.
Instantaneous velocity is the velocity at a particular instant of time, and hence the time interval needs to be very small. Hence, the limit is taken as ?t tending to zero.
