## FAQs on Question Type: Average Speed Video Lecture - Quantitative Aptitude (Quant) - CAT

 1. What is average speed?
Ans. Average speed is a measure of how fast an object is moving over a given distance. It is calculated by dividing the total distance traveled by the total time taken.
 2. How is average speed different from instantaneous speed?
Ans. Average speed is the total distance traveled divided by the total time taken, while instantaneous speed refers to the speed at a specific moment in time.
 3. Can average speed be negative?
Ans. No, average speed cannot be negative. It is always a positive value as it represents the overall speed of an object.
 4. How can I calculate average speed if the distance and time intervals are not constant?
Ans. To calculate average speed when the distance and time intervals are not constant, you can divide the total displacement by the total time taken. Displacement refers to the change in position from the start to the end point.
 5. Is average speed the same as average velocity?
Ans. No, average speed and average velocity are not the same. Average speed only considers the magnitude of the speed, while average velocity takes into account both the magnitude and direction of the motion.
