Total distance traveled / time

### What is definition of average speed?

The average rate of movement, for example the number of feet traveled in a certain number of seconds, or the number of miles traveled in a certain length of time.

### How is average speed sometimes different than average velocity?

Average speed is the distance traveled divided by the time traveled. Average velocity is the displacement divided by the time traveled. Displacement is change in position, or final position (df) minus initial position (di). Let's say you traveled from your home to the mall and then back again. The total distance traveled was 30 miles, and the total time driven was 1 hour. Average speed = distance traveled/time traveled = 30 miles/1 hour = 30mi/hr or 30mph. Average velocity = (df - di)/time traveled = 0 mile/1 hour = 0 mi/hr or 0mph.* *In this case the final position and the initial position are the same (your house), so the displacement is zero. Something to think about: When a Nascar driver races 500 miles around an oval track, his average speed might be 160mph, but his average velocity when he finishes the race is 0mph.
