Average velocity and instantaneous velocity






Record of movements

The motion of an object can be more easily understood by graphing it.
In the time-distance graph, the slope is equal to the velocity.
The average velocity that an object has moved over a certain period of time can be obtained as follows.

\[ Average\,velocity(m/s) = \frac{movement\,distance(m)}{taken\,time(s)} \]

The instantaneous velocity at every moment is equal to the slope of the tangent in the graph.
