3 Types of Speed

Average, Instantaneous, and Constant Speed

Average Speed

Average speed is the total distance traveled divided by the total time of travel. It can be calculated using the relationships among speed, distance, and time.

Instantaneous Speed

Instantaneous speed is the speed at a given point in time. For example the speed on a speedometer changing.

Constant Speed

Constant speed is the rate of speed without any acceleration or regression without changing direction of movement.
