    In kinematics, the speed of an object is the magnitude of its velocity
    (the rate of change of its position); it is thus a scalar quantity
  • Mahi Sethi

    When
    we travel in a vehicle the speed of the vehicle changes from time to
    time depending upon the conditions existing on the road. In such a
    situation, the speed is calculated by taking the ratio of the total
    distance traveled by the vehicle to the total time taken for the
    journey. This is called the average speed.
  • Ayush Sharma

    The definition for average speed is the following: the distance traveled
    divided by the amount of time taken to make the journey, not including
    any stops or breaks.
