Yes, but in uniform motion.

When an object is in constant motion (when there is no acceleration). At any point in that motion the average and instantaneous velocities will be the same.

No.Average velocity is the average of the velocty of entire motion where as instantaneous velocity is the velocity at an instant, it may be a function of time or displacement.

Only if the velocity is constant.

No. If it its moving at constant velocity, its instantaneous velocity would be the same as its constant velocity.

BecuZ average is the same limit and the other is nesting velocity

Instantaneous speed is the magnitude of the velocity. Velocity also states the [direction] of the speed.

no.

Velocity is an instantaneous measure. Mathematically, it is the limiting value of the change in the position vector divided by the change in time as the latter tends to zero. Over larger time periods, the average velocity is the total change in the position vector divided by the total change in time. If velocity is constant, the average velocity will be the same as the instantaneous velocity.

velocity is just a general term for speed (it could be average velocity or instantaneous velocity). Instantaneous velocity/speed (same thing) is the speed at that second. If you are familiar with calculus, it is the derivative of the position graph. Whereas average velocity is how fast the object is going in, for example, 1 hour, it is the speed that is maintained the whole hour (or the average) Instantaneous would be that at the second, at for example t=1.425, the speed is 24m/h . something along those lines

It equals an undefined entity. The average acceleration of an object equals the CHANGE in velocity divided by the time interval. The term "change in velocity" is not the same as the term "velocity", "average velocity", or "instantaneous velocity".

In that case, the average speed is the same as the instantaneous speed.
