How to find average velocity?

Average velocity is a measure of the rate of change of an object's position over a given time interval. It can be calculated as follows:

Average velocity = (final position - initial position) / time interval


  • final position is the object's position at the end of the time interval
  • initial position is the object's position at the start of the time interval
  • time interval is the length of time over which the velocity is being calculated

The average velocity of an object is a vector quantity, meaning that it has both magnitude (speed) and direction. It is important to note that average velocity does not take into account any changes in speed that may have occurred over the time interval, only the net change in position.

For example, if an object moves from position A to position B in 5 seconds with an average velocity of 10 meters per second, it means that the object has moved a total of 50 meters (10 meters/second * 5 seconds) in that time.
